LOS ANGELES -- With Jeff Weaver's return still uncertain, the Dodgers moved to shore up the starting rotation on Thursday by signing free agent right-hander Brett Tomko.
Tomko signed for two years with a third-year option and $8.7 million guaranteed -- $3.6 million in 2006, $4.1 million in 2007 and a mutual option for 2008 at $4.5 million or a $1 million buyout if Tomko opts out.
The 32-year-old right-hander went 8-15 with a 4.14 ERA in 2005 for the San Francisco Giants. He will be reunited with new Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti, the Gaints' former assistant general manager.
Personally, I don't give a damn. Tomko is a bad pitcher, and the Dodger's aren't getting much. I'm sure Brett with get more bench time with the Dodgers then with the Giants.
