Dodger Payroll Update
2005-01-09 22:47
by Jon Weisman
Note: The Dodger Thoughts blog has moved to the Los Angeles Times.

On the sidebar ...

  • Derek Lowe has been added to the Dodger starting rotation, at $9 million, pending news on how his four-year, $36 million contract is divided.

  • For now, Kazuhisa Ishii remains in the rotation and Edwin Jackson has been moved to the bullpen, leaving the staff with 12 pitchers. Ishii might not be with the team when the season starts, but the main thing for our purposes now is to know that his contract is an issue. And it wouldn't be outlandish for the Dodgers to hang onto Ishii, who does have value, at least until Brad Penny is throwing with convincing health.

  • Shawn Green moves to the Disabled/Traded list at $10 million.

  • Darren Dreifort's contract has been lowered from $13 million to $5 million, based on the reported $8 million the Dodgers would get in insurance coverage. Given that the payroll is now in the $92 million neighborhood and it's still only January, this seems to be the theory they are operating under.
