Dotel Nearly a Done Deal
Tuesday, December 20, 2005
"I feel very happy with this contract. This team has a lot of tradition, and it pleases me to know that they want me to pitch for them." - - - Octavio Dotel

The Yankees have just about locked up Octavio Dotel for the 2006 season, according to his agent Dan Horwits. The deal will earn Dotel up to five million dollars – two million base salary plus incentives – even though he likely won’t even be able to pitch until about midway through the season.

Despite having a rough season last year due to his ailing arm and undergoing Tommy John surgery last summer, both Dotel and the Yankees are optimistic that he will be in top pitching form in 2006. Dotel’s doctor noted that the surgery itself went very well, and that he was able to use a long tendon from Dotel’s leg and wrap it three times around his elbow; aside from that sounding downright creepy it offers hope for a quick and complete recovery. Only time and rehab will tell if Dotel can get his arm back in action in the Bronx, but I’m glad Cashman decided to invest a year into him.
