LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Los Angeles Dodgers and free agent pitcher Jon Garland have agreed to a $5 million, one-year contract that includes a club option and could be worth $16 million over two seasons.

The right-hander went 14-12 with a 3.47 ERA in 200 innings for the San Diego Padres last year.

In 2009, Garland played for Arizona and Los Angeles and went 11-12 with a 4.01 ERA. He was acquired by Los Angeles on Aug. 31, 2009, for infielder Tony Abreu and went 3-2 with a 2.72 ERA in six start for the Dodgers.

Garland can make $3 million in performance bonuses next year. Los Angeles has an $8 million team option for 2012 that could become guaranteed depending on his 2011 performance.
