Abnormalities discovered on Brian Dozier’s EKG test

11 Comments

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said following last night’s game that infielder Brian Dozier will be sent for further testing after he took an EKG test which revealed “abnormalities.”

Dozier had the EKG after leaving the game against the Giants due to dizziness. This comes days after the Dodgers lost closer Kenley Jansen to the disabled list due to an irregular heartbeat.

Dozier has provided the Dodgers a nice offensive and defensive boost since coming over in a trade from the Twins, hitting .282/.429/.590 with three homers and 11 RBI in 12 games with Los Angeles.

Ken Rosenthal reports that the Milwaukee Brewers have signed Gio Gonzalez. Gonzalez will get a $2 million base salary with $2 million in potential performance bonuses.

Gonzalez was excellent for the Brewers down the stretch last season, posting a 2.13 ERA over his final five regular season starts. While it’s not likely he can replicate that, given how terrible Milwaukee’s rotation has been thus far — they have a 5.74 ERA as a group this season — he can’t hurt.

Not a bad landing pad for a guy who had to settle for a minor league deal with the Yankees before being released over the weekend.
