Dodgers avoid arb with Jansen, all eligible players

Dodgers right-handed reliever Kenley Jansen avoided arbitration by reaching a one-year deal reported to be worth $10.65 million -- a $3.225 million raise over last year's salary -- on Friday, and the club announced it has signed all of its arbitration-eligible players.

Los Angeles reached one-year deals with infielder Justin Turner ($5.1 million), catcher Yasmani Grandal ($2.8 million) and lefty reliever Luis Avilan ($1.39 million). Contract figures were reported by MLB Network.

Jansen, 28, converted 36 of his 38 save opportunities last year and went 2-1 with a 2.41 ERA in 54 games over 52 1/3 innings. He has 142 saves since debuting for the Dodgers in 2010. This was Jansen's final year of arbitration eligibility.

Turner, 31, hit .294 with a .370 on-base percentage and a .491 slugging percentage in 439 plate appearances in 2015. He signed as a free agent before the '14 season after playing previously with the Orioles and Mets.

Grandal, 27, made his first All-Star Game appearance in 2015, and he finished the season with a .234/.353/.403 slash line and a career-best 16 home runs in 426 plate appearances.

Avilan, 26, went a combined 2-5 with a 4.05 ERA in 73 games with the Braves and the Dodgers. After joining Los Angeles as part of a three-team deal with Atlanta and Miami, Avilan went 0-1 with a 5.17 ERA in 23 games over 15 2/3 innings.

This week, the Dodgers also signed lefty reliever Chris Hatcher ($1.065 million) and outfielder Scott Van Slyke ($1.225 million) to one-year contracts.
