On Friday, the Dodgers went out and acquired catcher Russell Martin. Lost in the frenzy of this trade news, they avoided arbitration with seven players.
These players include Corey Seager, Joc Pederson, Chris Taylor, Kike Hernandez, Josh Fields, Pedro Baez and Yimi Garcia.
Per AP, the agreed salaries are as followed:
Joc Pederson $5 million
Corey Seager $4 million
Kiké Hernandez $3.725 million
Chris Taylor $3.5 million
Josh Fields $2.85 million
Pedro Baez $2.1 million
Yimi Garcia $710,000
Friday was the deadline for the Dodgers and these arbitration-eligible players to submit salaries for the purposes of arbitration hearings. The Dodgers have a team policy of not negotiating further if an agreement is not reached by that deadline.
