  • Dodgers decline Garland's option

    Jon Garland became a free agent today, as the Dodgers declined the mutual option on the 30-year-old right-hander's contract.

    Acquired from the Arizona Diamondbacks on Aug. 31 for a player to be named later who turned out to be infield prospect Tony Abreu, Garland was 3-2 with a 2.72 earned-run average in six regular-season starts for the Dodgers. Garland was relegated to relief duty in the National League Division Series and was excluded from the roster in the NL Championship Series.

    The Diamondbacks are responsible for the $2.5-million buyout of Garland's $10-million option.

    Garlands ERA is better than how he really pitched. He didn't pitch horrible but he got lucky more than once and if one thing had gone different his ERA would have been close 4.

    I wouldn't mind him being a number 4 or 5 in the rotation but not for what he would have earned.

    It is too bad we gave up Tony Abreu for only a month service in Garland.
