Ryan Doumit rejects the Dodgers - Other Catchers available


Mike DiGiovanna broke this news yesterday. {L.A. Times}

A source close to the Dodgers said the team offered free-agent catcher Ryan Doumit a one-year deal for just under $3 million, but the former Pittsburgh Pirates switch-hitter passed. The Angels were also believed to be interested in Doumit, but as of Sunday, they had not contacted Doumit's agent.

I guess Ned Colletti is not comfortable having A.J. Ellis and Tim Federowicz splitting time next year.
