Martin will be the highest-paid of the four who took one-year contracts, with a deal worth $5.05 million. Sherrill will earn $4.5 million, Loney will make $3.1 million and Kuo will be paid $975,000.
Coupled with the signings of Matt Kemp and Chad Billingsley earlier in the week, Tuesday's events mean that the Dodgers have reached agreements with all of their arbitration-eligible players.
In addition, the Dodgers have signed catcher J.D. Closser to a Minor League contract with an invitation to Major League camp. Closser last played in the Majors
in 2006, with the Rockies, and is a career .236 hitter with 10 home runs and 48 RBIs in 160 Major League games.
Martin, who earned $3.9 million in 2009, is coming off a down year after batting .250 with seven home runs and 53 RBIs in 143 games while leading the Majors in innings caught.
Sherrill, who made $2.75 million last year, shined with the Dodgers, allowing just two earned runs in 27 2/3 innings following his trade from Baltimore after having saved 20 games for the Orioles.
Loney, who earned $465,000 in 2009, batted .281 with 13 homers while ranking third on the team with 90 RBIs.
Kuo, who earned $437,000 last year, went 2-0 with a 3.00 ERA in just 35 appearances last year because of elbow injuries but closed out the season strong.
Ethier made $3.2 million and blossomed into a star in 2009, with a .272 batting average, 31 home runs and 106
RBIs. He also led the Majors in walk-off hits.
And finally Broxton, who earned $1.925 million in 2009, emerged as a top
closer with a 2.61 ERA and 36 saves along with a staggering 114
strikeouts in 76 innings.
