Dodgers don't offer arbitration to free agents
By Ken Gurnick / MLB.com
Dodgers free agents are Casey Blake, Jonathan Broxton, Jon Garland, Hiroki Kuroda, Mike MacDougal, Aaron Miles and Vicente Padilla. Kuroda is the lone ranking player among them, a Type B.
The Dodgers want to re-sign Kuroda, but not anywhere near the $12 million he made in 2011, so they had no interest in risking a similar arbitration salary in return for the compensation Draft pick.
Free agents Rod Barajas and Jamey Carroll have already signed with Pittsburgh and Minnesota, respectively. Barajas is a Type B free agent.
