The deadline for Major League Baseball teams to tender contracts to those eligible for arbitration was Friday night at 5 p.m. PT. The Dodgers handed out those contracts to all eligible players, except switch-pitching reliever Pat Venditte, who was designated for assignment Wednesday.
Venditte was non-tendered, making him a free agent.
The group of players receiving contracts include Yasiel Puig, Corey Seager, Alex Wood, Joc Pederson, Kiké Hernandez, Chris Taylor, Pedro Baez, Josh Fields and Yimi Garcia.
The Dodgers reportedly avoided arbitration with Tony Cingrani, signing him to a one-year contract earlier today.
The team and the remaining nine players will have until January 11 to exchange salary numbers and agree on a contract amount. If not, the two parties will head to an arbitration hearing to decide how much the player(s) will be paid for 2019.
