    Dodgers To Sign Todd Coffey
    By Ben Nicholson-Smith [February 3 at 3:36pm CST]

    The Dodgers agreed to sign Todd Coffey, Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com tweets. The deal, which is pending a physical, is worth $1.3MM and includes a club option for 2013, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports tweets. The Beverly Hills Sports Council represents Coffey.

    Coffey posted a 3.62 ERA with 6.9 K/9, 3.0 BB/9 and a 43.6% ground ball rate in 59 2/3 innings for the Nationals in 2011. The 31-year-old owns a 4.08 ERA with 6.7 K/9, 2.8 BB/9 and a 51% ground ball rate over the course of seven MLB seasons. He has been considerably more effective against right-handed hitting as a big league pitcher.

    Dodgers GM Ned Colletti had already added relievers Mike MacDougal ($1MM deal) and John Grabow (minor league deal) to the bullpen mix this offseason. The Dodgers also signed starters Chris Capuano and Aaron Harang to two-year contracts. Free agents Luis Ayala, Shawn Camp, Scott Linebrink and Michael Wuertz are out there for teams seeking right-handed relievers.

    Is he related to Mr Coffee, former Center Fielder for the NY Yankees?

    Jeez, he's like the Andre Ethier of relievers.

    Glad we filled our hole for a morbidly obese RP though.

    Really hate how this takes guys like Tolleson and Ames out of the discussion for a roster spot.

    Ned must have a Broxton- like load in the pen--this is a must. Imperative. It's just cheaper...has nothing to do with winning/losing...it's to satisfy the "Nedness" of Ned.
    Remember "better dead than red"? When people actually hated commies? Or is that way before everyone's time except me (and Tuborg)?
    Now, it's "if you're almost dead, you can sign with Ned".
    Is Uribe still alive?

    Blue Zoo, I think baseball agents everywhere have that motto written on the walls of their office.

    Just because there's parts of their games that are promising doesn't mean we need to see them in the mlb.
