Source: Dodgers, Carroll agree to 2-year deal

BY Ken Rosenthal • December 17, 2009

Free-agent infielder Jamey Carroll has agreed to a two-year, $3.85 million contract with the Dodgers, according to a major-league source. Incentives could push the deal past $4 million.

The A's offered Carroll more money, but Joe Torre and Don Mattingly were the clinchers, a source said. Carroll is from the same town as Mattingly -- Evansville, Ind.

Carroll hit .276 in 315 at-bats last season with the Indians.
