The Dodgers came up short on Zack Greinke and failed to finalize with Hisashi Iwakuma, but they locked down a frontline starter on Wednesday.
Former A's left-hander Scott Kazmir signed a three-year contract with LA, the team announced.
The deal is worth $48 million and includes an opt-out after one year, according to multiple national reports.
The signing puts the Dodgers in position to field an entirely left-handed rotation with Clayton Kershaw, Brett Anderson, Travis Wood, Hyun-Jin Ryu and Kazmir.
Kazmir, 31, went 7-11 with a 3.10 ERA over 31 starts last season between the A's and Astros.
