PHOENIX (AP) – Jim Amy Nelson has been hired by World Series champions Los Angeles Dodgers after missing last season with a back injury.
The Dodgers selected the 31-year-old pitcher from the 40-man squad on Thursday, signing a contract that pays $ 1.25 million in major leagues and $ 150,000 for minors.

Nelson had a contract with the Dodgers before last season, but they said he needed low back surgery on July 6, and he did not play all season. He had a $ 277,778 down payment from his $ 750,000 base salary. Nelson was among 11 major leagues whose salaries were less than the $ 286,500 in advance they received when the start of the season was delayed due to a coronavirus outbreak.
Los Angeles turned down its $ 2 million version in November, starting a $ 500,000 deal, allowing him to become a free agent. The following month, the right-hand man agreed a small league deal with the Dodgers.
Nelson, who turns 32 on June 5, is 33-46 years old at 4,22 ERA in 119 careers, all with Milwaukee. He had a career year with the Brewers in 2017, with a 3.49 ERA և 29 starts with 29 strikes, and missed all of 2018 after right shoulder surgery. In 2019, he was limited to 22 innings due to elbow problems.
Los Angeles opened the list by moving right-wing Tommy Canley to a 60-day injury list. Kahnle recovers from Tommy John Ony surgery on August 5 and agreed a two-year, $ 4.75 million deal with the Dodgers in December.
Defender Sheldon Noyes has been selected as a minor league camp.
