Carroll signed to split time at second
Dodgers ink versatile veteran to two-year contract
LOS ANGELES -- Jamey Carroll and Blake DeWitt "will share second base," Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti said Friday after Carroll passed his physical exam, making official his two-year, $3.85 million deal with the club."Jamey can also play shortstop, third base, the outfield," said Colletti. "If DeWitt gets hot, Carroll's got versatility. He could spell Casey Blake at third, he could spell Raffy [Rafael Furcal]. We've seen him in the outfield in season and we'll see him in Spring Training. He can come off the bench. There's a lot of different things he brings."
