Dodgers tender contracts to nine

LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers tendered contracts to all players on their Major League roster by Saturday night's deadline.

That included nine arbitration-eligible players: Chad Billingsley, Jonathan Broxton, Andre Ethier, Matt Kemp, Hong-Chih Kuo, James Loney, Russell Martin, Jason Repko and George Sherrill.


Other than Repko, who spent 2009 in the Minor Leagues, each is in line for a significant salary increase. That is especially true for five who are eligible for arbitration for the first time -- Billingsley, Broxton, Kemp, Kuo and Loney.
