A Brief History Of The Dodgers And Offering Arbitration

Casey Blake, who was a free agent after the 2008 season, remains the only Type B free agent to whom the Dodgers have offered salary arbitration in the last six years.

Yesterday, the Dodgers declined to offer salary arbitration to any of their Type B free agents. It was the second straight season they have declined to offer arbitration to any of their pending compensation-providing free agents (not that this season is very analogous to last season in caliber of free agents leaving). Here is a brief history of the Dodgers and their decisions on whether or not to offer arbitration to their free agents, with a look at the last six years:

2010

No (3): Vicente Padilla (B), Rod Barajas (B), Scott Podsednik (B)

2009

No (7): Randy Wolf (A), Orlando Hudson (A), Ronnie Belliard (B), Vicente Padilla (B), Jon Garland (B), Guillermo Mota (B), Will Ohman (B)

2008

Yes (3): Manny Ramirez  (A), Derek Lowe (A), Casey Blake (B)

No (4): Joe Beimel (B), Jeff Kent (B), Greg Maddux (B), Brad Penny (B)

2007

2006

Yes (1): Julio Lugo (A)

No (3): Greg Maddux (A), Eric Gagne (A), Kenny Lofton (B)

Over the last six years, the Dodgers have offered arbitration to four of eight Type A free agents, and one of 15 Type B free agents.
