Dodgers re-sign Jeff Weaver to minors deal

Feb 2, 2010, 8:33 PM EDT

The Dodgers have re-signed Jeff Weaver to a minor league contract, according to Tim Brown of Yahoo! Sports.

Weaver did a fine job last season in a swingman role for the Dodgers, compiling a 6-4 record, a 3.65 ERA and a 64/33 K/BB ratio in 28 appearances (seven starts).  He will hold the same type of gig in 2010 for Los Angeles, though expecting similar results might be wishful thinking.  Weaver turns 34 this season and is undoubtedly at the tail end of his career.  His fastball averaged just 89.8 MPH last season and he relies heavily on “junk” these days to retire opposing hitters.

    Since when is 90 mph “junk”? It used to be pretty good, and even now, isn’t it average?
