Dodgers, Martin Agree

From Ken Rosenthal at FOXSports.com:

The Dodgers have avoided salary arbitration with catcher Russell Martin, signing him to a one-year, $3.9 million contract, according to a major-league source.

The deal is the largest ever awarded to a catcher in his first year of arbitration.

Congrats, Russell! Good job, Ned.


Broxton too. From Diamond:

The Dodgers also signed reliever Jonathan Broxton to a one-year, $1.825 million contract plus incentives.
