Joe Wieland avoids arbitration and re-signs with the Dodgers.
Wieland spent most of last season with the Dodgers' Triple-A affiliate and posted a 4.59 ERA with a 7.28 K/9 over 113 2/3 innings. The 25-year old right-hander once showed some nice promise at the minor league level, but has since faded and seems unlikely to make any sort of impression at the big league level. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed, but he's not costing the Dodgers too much here. Analysis: Howard Bender
