The Dodgers have signed free agent pitcher Hisashi Iwakuma to a 3-year $45 million contract. This deal comes just a couple days after the Dodgers lost Zack Greinke to the Arizona Diamondbacks after signing a six-year $206.5 million contract.
The 34-year old will enter his fifth season after he pitched the previous four seasons behind Mariners ace Felix Hernandez. He’s been a solid pitcher for Seattle with a career 45-25 record and a 3.17 ERA in 111 games in which he started 97.
Although the Dodgers got a pitcher after they lost one they are still exploring the market for more. With the departure of Greinke it leaves some big shoes for the starters to fill behind Clayton Kershaw.
