Utilityman Elian Herrera announced on Twitter that he agreed to a contract with the Dodgers. Eric Stephen of SB Nation’s True Blue LA confirmed that it is a minor league deal with an invitation to spring training.

Herrera, 30, was with the Dodgers between 2003 and 2013 and spent the last two seasons with the Brewers. He has a meager .666 OPS in his major league career, but he has experience playing all three outfield positions as well as second base, third base, and shortstop, so he’ll provide some organizational versatility for the Dodgers.
