News: Dodgers Sign Non-Tender Candidate Scott Alexander To New Deal

Today is the final day for all 30 major league teams to decide whether they want to tender any of their arbitration-eligible players a contract or non-tender them and make them a free agent.

The Dodgers had just one logical candidate to be potentially non-tendered in left-hander Scott Alexander. However, the Dodgers according to multiple sources have elected to tender Alexander a contract and signed him to a 1-year, $1 million deal.

Alexander went 2-0 with a 2.92 ERA, 1.46 WHIP, and a 9/9 K/BB rate in 12.1 innings during the regular season. He did not pitch in the postseason.

Alexander, 31, is entering just his second year of arbitration and is under team control until 2023.
