The Los Angeles Dodgers and left-hander Andrew Heaney officially agreed to terms Wednesday on a one-year contract.

Financial terms were not disclosed, with multiple reports indicating the deal was worth $8.5 million.

Heaney, 30, split last season between the Los Angeles Angels and New York Yankees, posting a combined 8-9 record with a 5.83 ERA. He owned a 6-7 record and 5.27 ERA with the Angels before being traded to the Yankees on July 30 for minor league pitchers Janson Junk and Elvis Peguero.

Heaney owns a 32-38 record with a 4.72 ERA in 121 career appearances (112 starts) with the Miami Marlins, Angels and Yankees.

Technically, Heaney will be making his return to the Dodgers. He was once property of the club for less than 24 hours when he was traded from the Marlins, along with Austin Barnes and Enrique Hernandez on Dec. 11, 2014. He was immediately flipped to the Angels in exchange for Howie Kendrick.

The signing comes in the same week the Dodgers extended a qualifying offer to shortstop Corey Seager and utility man Chris Taylor, but did not offer one to left-hander Clayton Kershaw, making the veteran a free agent for the first time in his career.
