According to Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times, Jimmy Nelson has agreed to a deal with the Dodgers. Nelson will be guaranteed a little over $1 million and can make over $3 million if he hits some health-based incentives.
The 30-year-old Nelson had one of his stronger seasons in 2017 where he was an NL Cy Young award candidate and he recorded a 3.49 ERA with a 27.3 percent strikeout rate. But a shoulder problem derailed his 2018 season entirely.
If Nelson can regain part of his old form he’ll be a very useful addition to the Dodgers.
