From Jon Paul Morosi of FOXSports.com comes word that the Dodgers are close to an agreement on a minor league contract with reliever Wil Ledezma.

A 30-year-old left-hander, Ledezma surrendered 11 hits and 10 earned runs in six innings this past year for the Blue Jays. He has a brutal 5.40 career ERA and 1.61 career WHIP in the major leagues.

The Dodgers are likely viewing him as organizational relief depth for 2012. He’s doubtful to land a spot on the Opening Day roster out of spring training and probably won’t be promoted to the bigs unless the Los Angeles ‘pen is in desperate need of lefty help.

    Mark my words: he’s going to be quietly sold for ethanol.

        He just isn’t very good.

        A “deck” of smokes?

    Who? Yet another sweet acquisition, Colletti. Ugh.

    And he’ll make half a million dollars. Where’s my glove. I can put up those numbers AND do the team’s laundry.

      It’s a minor league contract, so it’s probably a lot less than that. Triple-A salaries start at a little more than $2000 per month.
