Gagne Back In Albuquerque?

Relief pitcher Eric Gagne has come full circle and returned to his roots, the Dodgers, who signed the 2003 Cy Young Award winner to a Minor League contract with an invite to Spring Training.  Having not pitched in the Major Leagues since 2008 with the Brewers, it’s difficult to put a finger on how good his chances are of making the Major League club, which means there might be a chance that he might start the 2010 season in Albuquerque.  In 2000, Gagne, who was a starter at the time, made nine starts for the Dukes, going 5-1 with a 3.88 ERA.  Last season, Gagne played in his hometown, Quebec City, Canada, in the independent Canadian-American Association, going 6-6 with a 4.65 ERA in 17 games, all starts.  In 2002 Gagne saved 52 games and saved 55 more for the Dodgers in 2003.

    I am a big Gagne fan! I know he will not be what he once was but it’s good to see him back in Dodger Blue. The Dodgers got him for practically nothing ($500,000 is a lot to me), so anything they can get out of him is a bonus. I would like to see him back in Albuquerque. Can’t wait for the season to start!!!
