Scott Podsednik and the Dodgers entered the offseason with a mutual option on his $2 million 2011 contract. Today, the Dodgers voted yes on their half, leaving the outfielder three days to decide if he wants to reciprocate or test free agency.

Podsednik, who will be 35 in March, made a good impression on Dodger general manager Ned Colletti despite performing rather unimpressively.

"Our thought process after watching him play for us and seeing what he added to our club was that we would like to have him back," Colletti said. "He obviously has versatility in the field, plus he has an added component in the speed he has.''
