Multiple reports have the Dodgers signing LHP Brett Anderson to a 1 year $10 million deal. He would essentially replace Dan Haren and give the Dodgers 3 lefties in their starting rotation: Kershaw, Ryu, and Anderson. (Source: Bill Plunkett on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Anderson is only 26 years old but has been injured the past 4 seasons. He had Tommy John surgery in 2011 and back surgery last year.

He's going to pitcher- friendly Chavez Ravine, Rick Honeycutt is an excellent coach, Yasmani Grandal is one of the best pitch framers, and he will be around Clayton Kershaw.
