Dylan Hernandez of the LA Times tweets that the Dodgers have agreed to terms on a minor league contract with free agent outfielder Garret Anderson. If he makes the club, this will mark somewhat of a homecoming, because Anderson spent the first fifteen of his career with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

According to SI.com's Jon Heyman (via Twitter), Anderson can opt out of the contract if not on the major league roster by Opening Day.

Playing for the Braves in 2009, Anderson hit an underwhelming .268/.303/.401 in 534 plate appearances. It was his first and only year with Atlanta. Due to the decline in his hitting skills his value evaporated this offseason, leaving him searching for a job after spring training games began yesterday.
