The Dodgers have signed former Athletics second baseman Mark Ellis to a two-year deal worth 8.75 million. The contract also includes a team option for the 2014 season, according to Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal.Ellis hit .248 with seven home runs between the A's and Rockies last season. He started his career in Oakland in 2002 and hit .265 with 86 home runs in eight and a half seasons with the A's. Ellis is a Type B free agent, meaning the Rockies will receive a supplemental draft pick for losing him to the Dodgers.
