Dodgers ink Kennedy

The Los Angeles Dodgers signed veteran year contract on Thursday.

"Adam gives us infield depth and an experienced left-handed bat," said Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti. "He provides us with infield versatility at second and third base and can play first as well."

Kennedy hit .234 with seven home runs, 23 doubles and 38 RBI over 114 games with the Seattle Mariners in 2011.

The 35-year-old journeyman is a lifetime .272 hitter with 78 homers, 280 doubles and 555 runs batted in during 13 major-league seasons with the Cardinals, Angels, Athletics, Nationals and Mariners.

Kennedy was named the most valuable player of the 2002 ALCS for the Angels, who took a five-game decision over Minnesota thanks to his .357 average, three homers and five RBI.
