LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers did not offer salary arbitration by Wednesday night's deadline to any of their seven free agents and will receive no compensation if they sign with another club.
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.
