Matt Guerrier Signs With Los Angeles Dodgers

Right-handed pitcher Matt Guerrier, a guy that had been one of the few consistently productive staples of the Minnesota Twins' bullpen over the past couple of seasons, is taking his talents to Long Beach. Well, the area of Long Beach, anyway.

According to ESPN 1500, among other sources, the 32-year old has signed a three-year contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers. Financial terms of the deal were not immediately disclosed. Guerrier was considered a "Type A" free agent, but because the Twins did not offer him salary arbitration, they will not receive any compensation from the Dodgers in return.

Guerrier spent seven years with Minnesota, and had thrown at least 69 innings in each of the last six seasons. In 472 total innings pitched, he posted a 3.38 ERA, 310 strikeouts, and 147 walks in 472 innings pitched.

The folks from Twinkie Town will have more details on the impact of this move as they have time to analyze it.
