The Dodgers agreed to one-year contracts with all of their arbitration-eligible players.

All seven arbitration-eligible players on the Dodgers who entered Friday’s deadline to exchange salary arbitration figures without deals were signed by day’s end.

That group of players included RHP Pedro Baez, LHP Tony Cingrani, RHP Josh Fields, C Yasmani Grandal, INF/OF Kiké Hernandez, OF Joc Pederson and LHP Alex Wood.

Baez had a 2.95 ERA, striking out 64 batters in 64 innings last season.

Cingrani joined the Dodgers at the trade deadline last year and enjoyed a resurgence the second half of his season. After compiling a 5.40 ERA and 1.33 WHIP in 23 1/3 innings with the Reds to start...

Baez, Cingrani, Fields, Grandal, Hernandez, Pederson, Wood agreed to one-year contracts Friday

  • Did any of these people trashing Baez watch the Dodgers at all last season? He had a bad month, but otherwise he was one of the most dominant relievers in baseball through the first 5-6 months of the season. He’s a converted third baseman, and has only been pitching for a few years, of course he is going to be inconsistent. He throws absolute gas and is starting to find his fastball command. He will have a dominant year in 2018.

  • Why is Baez still around, get rid if that guy.

  • Every team has a “Chris Hatcher” guy in their bullpen: not a bad guy but someone who hits a skid and doesn’t live up to expectations. Cubs had Pedro Strop, Cardinals had Rosenthal, and the Dodgers had Chris Hatcher... until they traded him to Oakland... then our “Chris Hatcher” became Baez. If Baez had done well, we’d be trashing Avilan or Cingrini, and if Baez recovers or gets traded, we will trash someone else. Just like we did Chris Hatcher. Just sayin’
