Dodgers catch ‘two season out’ pitcher again… Up to $4 million per year
The Los Angeles Dodgers re-signed Jimmy Nelson, 메이저놀이터 who was out for two seasons.
“The Athletic” reporter Fabian Ardaya said on the 16th (Korean time), “According to sources, Nelson and the Dodgers are together. It’s a big league contract, and it’s a one-year, $1.2 million deal. When incentives are included, you can receive up to $4 million.”
Nelson, who debuted with the Milwaukee Brewers, was a starting resource, but after joining the Dodgers, he mainly plays as a reliever. He joined from the 2020 season, but played only one season in the 2021 season, and could not play a single game in the 2020 season and last year due to injuries.
The 2021 season, which he played at least, also only played 28 games. In a short period of time, he showed a good figure with 1 win, 2 losses, 1.86 ERA, and 6 holds, leaving more regret.
Although Nelson’s exact physical condition is not known, predictions are emerging that he has improved significantly since he signed a major league contract.
If he looks the same as he did in 2021, he could be a big help for the Dodgers. The Dodgers’ bullpen currently features Alex Bescia, Evan Phillips, Yancy Almonte and Brusdar Graterol.
Meanwhile, the Dodgers have a full 40-man roster and will need to make further moves if Nelson’s acquisition becomes official. It is expected that there will be a 60-day injured list or nomination assignment.
