LOS ANGELES, Calif. Maillot Javier Pastore . - After an itinerant major league career, Brandon McCarthy is grateful the Los Angeles Dodgers are giving him the chance to grow with a contender.The Dodgers finalized a $48 million, four-year contract with McCarthy on Tuesday, designating reliever Brian Wilson for assignment to make room for the right-hander.McCarthy eagerly agreed to a long-term deal with his favourite childhood team, seizing the chance to replace Dan Haren as the NL West champions fourth starter alongside Clayton Kershaw, Zack Greinke and Hyun-Jin Ryu.There was nothing that didnt intrigue me about the Dodgers, McCarthy said. I grew up 10 miles from the stadium. The Dodgers were what I knew, who I looked up to as a kid.Before he graduated from high school in Colorado, the 31-year-old McCarthy lived in Pasadena, California, idolizing Orel Hershiser and looking forward to his familys handful of trips each season to Chavez Ravine. He remembers getting Hershisers autograph at Disneyland as a high point of his youth.And after bouncing around the majors to five teams in his first nine years, McCarthy was thrilled by the Dodgers four-year commitment.It was a very big thing for me, because having that stop-start identity with each organization, it weighs on you, McCarthy said, adding that he wanted to have a chance to actually make a name for myself and actually leave an identity and a long-term reputation with a team.McCarthy gets a $6 million signing bonus with half payable by Jan. 15 and the rest by Feb. 15, and salaries of $11 million in 2015 and 2016, dropping to $10 million in 2017 and 2018. The Dodgers get some injury protection in the form of a conditional club option at $5 million if he spends 180 or more days on disabled list as a result of an injury to his pitching shoulder related to stress fracture or a reaction injury during 2015-18. The option price would increase to $8 million if the DL time is from 120-179 days from 2015-18.In a prudent financial move by the free-spending Dodgers, McCarthys contract includes no tweet escalators. The pitcher already has a fame outstripping his 52-65 career record thanks to the 148,000-odd followers of his popular Twitter account — and that of his equally hilarious wife, Amanda, who also was born and raised in Southern California.If the 6-foot-7 McCarthy maintains the form he showed late last season with the New York Yankees, hell fit in splendidly on Hollywoods favourite team.McCarthy went 7-5 with a 2.89 ERA in 14 starts for the Yankees, who acquired him from Arizona on July 6. He started the season 3-10 with a 5.01 ERA in 18 starts for the Diamondbacks, who signed him before the 2013 season.McCarthy has never won more than 10 games in a season, racking up a career 4.09 ERA during stints with the Chicago White Sox (2005-06), Texas (2007-09) and Oakland (2011-12).But he thrived last season with the Yankees, adding a cutter to his repertoire and pitching more than 200 innings for the first time in his career. New Dodgers general manager Farhan Zaidi has faith in McCarthy after their time together in Oakland.Although McCarthy has been to the disabled list 10 times in his career, he apparently has fully recovered after getting hit in the head by a line drive from the Angels Erick Aybar in 2012. McCarthys health remains his paramount concern, but he also looks forward to improving his game by joining one of baseballs most impressive rotations.Missing time, you lose that feel and ability in the middle of the season, McCarthy said. Last year I was able to gain as a pitcher instead of falling backwards. Having guys like Greinke there, having guys like Kershaw, having a whole new library of information you can tap into once you walk in those doors, Im looking forward to that.To make room on their 40-man roster, the Dodgers finally gave up on Wilson, the heavily bearded reliever who revitalized his career with Los Angeles over the past two years.Wilson went 2-4 with a 4.66 ERA in 61 appearances for the Dodgers last season, but the longtime Giants closer blew four of his five save opportunities and lost his job as a setup man for Kenley Jansen while developing a reputation for wild inconsistency. After two elbow ligament replacement surgeries, he has struggled to hit 90 mph with his fastball, but his strong finish to 2013 earned him a lucrative contract with a big player option for 2015.If the deep-pocketed Dodgers release Wilson, they would be responsible for his $10 million salary. If he then signs a major league contract with another team, that team would pay him the $507,000 major league minimum salary, which would be offset.President of Baseball Operations Andrew Friedmans new regime in Los Angeles has been awfully busy in its first month on the job. While trading Haren and Dee Gordon to Miami in a seven-player deal last week, the club also acquired veterans Jimmy Rollins and Howie Kendrick while shipping Matt Kemp to San Diego.

Markus Granlund scored the shootout winner as the Heat defeated the Hamilton Bulldogs 3-2 in the American Hockey League. "It was tough on us, losing the last few games, and with this being our last game before Christmas we will definitely take the win," said Granlund. Dean Arsene and Ben Hanowski had goals for the Heat (21-9-2), while Joni Ortio stopped 32 shots. The win ended a three-game losing streak for Abbotsford. Joonas Nattinen had a goal and an assist, and Joel Chouinard also scored for the Bulldogs (12-14-4). Dustin Tokarski made 39 saves. Hamilton has now lost five consecutive games. "We have to bring those points home," said Hamilton head coach Sylvain Lefebvre. "Its disappointing. "Abbotsford is a good team, and theyre not in first place in our conference for nothing. Theyre a team that battles and competes." Granlund scored on Abbotsfords second attempt of the shootout, while Corban Knight added a goal on the fourth attempt. Ortio stopped all four Hamilton shots. A penalty to Hamiltons Mike Blunden just 49 seconds into the first period put the Bulldogs on their heels, and the hosts struggled to exit their defensive zone early in the period. It took Hamilton nearly seven minutes to register its first shot, but the Bulldogs began to manufacture offensive pressure with the trio of Nattinen, Justin Courtnall and Stefan Fournier establishing a cycle midway through the period. The Heat forced several tough saves from Bulldogs goaltender Tokarski, with the sharpest of those coming with four and a half minutes to play in the period. Abbotsford broke into the offensive zone through the right wing, and Tokarski denied a low slap shot intended for his far post and smothered the loose puck. The goaltender turned aside all 13 shots he faced in the first period, while his counterpart Ortio successfully stopped nine. Hamilton capitalized on offensive pressure in the aftermath of a power play to open the scoring at 4:35 of the second period. Morgan Ellis took a low slap shot frrom the point that bounced to Fournier in the low slot, and he tipped it ahead to Nattinen. Maillot Lucas Paris Saint-Germain. The centre moved to his backhand and slotted the puck past a diving Ortio. As Abbotsford chased an equalizer, it was Blunden who nearly doubled Hamiltons lead a minute and a half later when Martin St. Pierre found him with a cross-ice pass and the winger fired a rising wrist shot that Ortio knocked to the corner with his shoulder. The Heat found the tying goal on a seemingly harmless play, as Arsene took a long-range wrist shot that eluded Tokarski and clipped his far post as it crossed the goal line at 9:56 of the second period. Arsenes goal was his first of the season. Hamilton re-established a lead at 11:18 of the second period, when another defenceman, Chouinard, scored his first goal of the season. Jordan Owens found Nattinen in the high slot with a centring pass, and the forward responded to defensive pressure with a drop pass to Chouinard at the blue-line. The defenceman fired a low slap shot that moved through traffic and beat the screened Ortio. The Heat struck early in the third period to level the game once again, as Hanowski pounced on a rebound to score at 4:47. Tokarski reacted well to stop Josh Jooris initial shot with his left pad, but Hanowski beat the Bulldogs defenders to the rebound and chipped it high and past the downed goaltender. The play was wide open and frantic in the final minutes of the third period as both teams searched for a winning goal. Tokarski made two exceptional saves before the period came to a close, and denied Sven Baertschi from close range without a stick with 23 seconds to play. Lefebvre was not content with his teams loose play in the period that repeatedly forced Tokarski into action. "Thats not the style that we want to play," he said. "We got stuck in our own zone on a few long shifts, and (Abbotsford) got a few good scoring chances. Thats where Tokarski had to be good, and he gave us a chance to win the game tonight." Abbotsford enjoyed a minute and a half of 4-on-3 power-play time to open the overtime period, but could not find a way past Tokarski.
