The Dodgers have agreed on a one-year deal with Brad Ausmus that includes a mutual option for 2011, according to his agent, Pete Mrowka.

Ausmus, 40, started 27 games as Russell Martin's backup at catcher. He batted .295 in 36 games last season.

Ausmus will earn a base salary of $850,000 this year and his 2011 option is worth $1 million. If either Ausmus or the Dodgers decline the option, Ausmus will be paid $150,000.
