Dodgers tender contracts to nine
Kuo, Loney, Billingsley among those in line for raises
By Ken Gurnick / MLB.com
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.
