Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times is reporting via Twitter that he has been informed by sources about news surrounding the re-signing of reliever Brandon League.
Moments later Hernandez went back to Twitter to report that the deal would be for three years.
League, 30 in March, was traded to the Dodgers on July 31 from the Seattle Mariners in exchange for outfielder Leon Landry and pitcher Logan Bawcom.
In 28 games for the club he posted a 2-1 record with a 2.30 ERA, including collecting 6 saves as he completed the 2012 season as the club’s closer.
League posted a WHIP of 1.13 which is right on par with the 1.08 WHIP he posted in 2011 as an All-Star with the Mariners.
His strikeout to walk ratio did fall from 4.50 to 1.64 between the two seasons, but the Dodgers are optimistic that League can get right back to form.
The addition of League to the Dodgers bullpen in 2013 guarantees that the Dodgers are set in the late innings, also boasting Kenley Jansen and Ronald Belisario among others.
Still on the shopping list for the Dodgers is a starting pitcher, where the team could decide to pursue free agent Zack Greinke.
