Dodgers exchange salary figures with Andre Ethier

Andre Ethier

There was a $1.1 million gap in the salary figures exchanged by Andre Ethier and the Dodgers today as part of the arbitration process. Ethier is asking for $3.75 million and the Dodgers are offering $2.65 million.

Ethier and the Dodgers will argue their respective cases in an arbitration hearing next month if they can't reach a settlement by then. Because of the amount of risk involved for both the players and their teams -- the arbitration panel awards the player one of the two figures that were submitted and never anything in between -- these cases usually are settled before the hearings. Most settlements are around the midway point of the two figures, which in this case is $3.2 million.

Ethier is the only Dodger who remains eligible for arbitration. Russell Martin ($3.9 million), Jonathan Broxton ($1.825 million) and Jason Repko ($500,000) avoided arbitration by signing one-year contracts.
