Encarnacion agrees to two-year deal with Dodgers
The 27-year-old outfielder, who had been eligible for salary arbitration, hit .270 with 19 homers, 94 RBIss and 19 steals last season for the World Series champion Marlins.
Encarnacion gets about $3.55 million in 2004 and $4.45 million in 2005.
Also Monday, the Dodgers acquired right-hander Brandon Weeden from the New York Yankees to complete Saturday's trade for Kevin Brown. Los Angeles also got right-handers Jeff Weaver and Yhency Brazoban and $2.6 million.
Weeden, 20, was New York's top pick in the 2002 amateur draft, taken on the second round with the 71st pick overall. He was 2-0 with a 1.73 ERA in four starts and three relief appearances last season with the rookie Gulf Coast Yankees and 0-2 with a 3.72 ERA in five starts at Class-A Tampa.
