LOS ANGELES, Dec. 14 (UPI) -- The Los Angeles Dodgers announced Wednesday they have have signed free agent third baseman Bill Mueller to a two-year contract.
Terms of the deal, not disclosed, are reported to be worth $9.5 million.
"Every successful team has true baseball players with the makeup, drive and desire of Bill Mueller," said Dodgers General Manager Ned Colletti. "His ability to hit from both sides of the plate will give (Manager) Grady Little additional maneuverability."
Mueller, 34, batted .295 with 10 home runs and 62 RBI in 150 games last season with the Boston Red Sox, where he spent the last three seasons. In 2003 with the Red Sox, Mueller won the American League batting title after he hit .326 in addition to his career-highs in homers (19) and RBI (85).
