Joe Blanton, 31, starting pitcher
Final 2012 stats: 10-13, 4.71 ERA, 1.26 WHIP overall; 2-4, 4.99 ERA, 1.42 WHIP in 10 starts (57 2/3 innings) with the Dodgers.
Contract status: Free agent.
The good: During the stretch in September, the right-hander posted a 3.38 ERA and the Dodgers went 4-1 in his last five starts. He pitched at least five innings in all but one of his 10 starts with the Dodgers. The Dodgers won six of those 10.
The bad: Never really gave the Dodgers a dominant outing. After allowing only 18 walks in 133 1/3 innings with the Phillies, oddly walked 16 in 57 2/3 innings with the Dodgers. Not that he was a problem, but he never seemed truly comfortable in the Dodgers clubhouse.
