The Dodgers sign Ron Belliard

Jan 26, 2010, 4:19 PM EDT

MLB.com’s Ken Gurnick reports that the Dodgers have come to terms with Ron Belliard on a one-year, $850,000 deal.

Belliard was hot down stretch for L.A. last year, hitting .351/.398/.636 in 24 games and taking Orlando Hudson’s job. He started all of the Dodgers’ playoff games, reaching base 13 times in 34 plate appearances against the Cardinals and Phillies.

Belliard is obviously not going to be a 1.000 OPS player in 2010, but you had to figure that Joe Torre wasn’t entirely comfortable with second base coming down to a Jamey Carroll-Blake DeWitt battle.  Now he’s got options.

    How many roster spots does Belliard take up? Two? Three?

    Seats, you mean?
