(AP) — Pitcher Brett Anderson gets a $5 million signing bonus as part of his $10 million, one-year contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers. He can make an additional $4 million in performance bonuses.
The 26-year-old left-hander was 1-3 with a 2.91 ERA last year with the Rockies. He was limited to eight starts because of a broken left index finger and lower back surgery.
Anderson is 27-32 with three saves and a 3.73 ERA in 92 games in six major league seasons with Oakland and Colorado.
