Ethier Loney agree to 1-year deals with Dodgers

Associated Press  |  Last updated January 17, 2012
Andre Ethier and James Loney have agreed to one-year contracts with the Los Angeles Dodgers that avoided salary arbitration. Ethier agreed at $10.95 million and Loney at $6,375,000. Either was coming off a $15.25 million, two-year contract that paid him $9.25 million last season, when he hit .292 with 11 homers and 62 RBIs and earned his first Gold Glove in the outfield. The two-time All-star had a 30-game hitting streak early in the season but was bothered by a right knee injury and had surgery in September. He also can earn $50,000 in performance bonuses: $25,000 each for 600 and 625 plate appearances. He is eligible for free agency after this season, as is Loney. Loney made $4,875,000 last year, when he struggled early before having a solid second half. The first baseman hit .288 with 12 homers and 65 RBIs. Loney was arrested in November on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol after his Maserati hit three cars on a Los Angeles freeway, although no charges have been filed.
