LOS ANGELES (AP) Catcher Yasmani Grandal and pitchers Luis Avilan, Josh Fields and Alex Wood agreed Friday to one-year deals with the Los Angeles Dodgers, avoiding arbitration.
Grandal's deal is worth $5.5 million. While Wood gets $2.8 million, Avilan $1.5 million and Fields $1.05 million
Grandal hit .228 last season with 72 RBIs and 27 home runs, which tied for the team lead and ranked second among major league catchers. The 28-year-old switch hitter, who made $2.8 million, hit his stride in July when he batted .324 with eight homers in 68 at-bats.
