After the Yankees acquired someone, in Jamie Hoffmann, the Dodgers did not want on their 40-man roster, the Dodgers returned the favor, in a way.

The Dodgers have signed pitcher Josh Towers to a minor league deal, according to the Associated Press.  Towers, who turns 33 in February, put up a 2.74 ERA in 19 appearances (18 starts) with the Triple A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees in 2009.  He started 2009 in the Nationals' system, but was released after just one appearance with Triple A Syracuse.  The Yankees called up Towers twice during the season, but he appeared in just two September games in mop-up duty.  He is a low walk, low strikeout pitcher, averaging 1.5 walks and 4.8 strikeouts per nine innings in his major league career.

Towers has a split contract that will pay him $700,000 in the major leagues, and $100,000 while in the minor leagues.
