The Dodgers settled the last of their potential arbitration cases Friday, as they signed closer Kenley Jansen to a new contract, according to a person familiar with the situation who spoke under condition of anonymity because the deal hasn’t been officially announced.
Under the terms of the one-year deal, Jansen will earn $10.65 million this year, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reported.
This marks the final year of arbitration eligibility for Jansen, who can become a free agent at the end of the season. Jansen earned $7.425 million last year, when he posted a 2.41 earned-run average and saved 36 games.
The last time the Dodgers faced a player in an arbitration hearing was in 2007, when they beat left-hander Joe Beimel.
Counting Jansen’s deal, the Dodgers now have a payroll of around $200 million for the upcoming season.
