Dodgers The Dodgers avoided salary arbitration with three of their players this morning, signing James Loney, George Sherrill and Hong-Chih Kuo to one-year contracts.

Loney, who was arbitration-eligible for the first time, will earn $3.1 million this year. Loney's agent, Joe Urbon, said the Dodgers approached Loney about a multiyear deal, but that Loney was focused on signing a one-year contract.

Sherrill will receive a base salary of $4.5 million and can earn additional $150,000 in incentives based on appearances. The left-hander would receive $75,000 each for reaching the 60- and 70-game plateaus. Sherrill pitched in 72 games last season.

Kuo will earn a base salary of $950,000 and can earn an additional $150,000 in incentives based on appearances. His 55th and 60th appearances would earn him $25,000 each, and his 65th and 70th would earn him $50,000 each. Kuo pitched in 35 games last season.

Players and teams exchanged salary figures today.
