This time last year Brandon League had just signed a three-year, $22.5 million contract to become the Dodgers’ closer and now he’s in danger of not even making the team out of spring training.

League was awful last season, losing the closer gig and being demoted to a mop-up role while posting a 5.30 ERA in 54 innings, and if there’s one team that won’t base a roster decision on simply owing someone a bunch of money it’s probably the Dodgers.
