Gagne wants to return to LA
From Ken Gurnick of MLB.com:
LOS ANGELES — Eric Gagne wants to be a Dodger again.
General manager Ned Colletti said that his scouts have seen Gagne throw but that the club has not made an offer or decided whether it would. Gagne also reportedly has contacted the Rockies, who are managed by Jim Tracy, Gagne’s skipper during his glory years with Los Angeles.
The Dodgers’ bullpen is loaded — with Jonathan Broxton, George Sherrill, Hong-Chih Kuo and Ronald Belisario, among others — and the 40-man roster is full. Thus Gagne would have to make the club on a Minor League contract.
Gagne, 34, had a remarkable, albeit steroid-driven, run with the Dodgers in 2002-04.
He last pitched in the Majors with Milwaukee in 2008, posting a 5.44 ERA over 46 1/3 innings.
