Dodgers News: Los Angeles avoids arbitration with Kenley Jansen, Juan Nicasio, Justin Turner

The Los Angeles Dodgers avoided arbitration with three players on Friday, striking one-year deals with closer Kenley Jansen, RHP Juan Nicasio, and infielder Justin Turner.

Per Dylan Hernandez of the LA Times, "Jansen, Turner and Nicasio were the team’s last three arbitration-eligible players. If they hadn’t signed new deals by Friday, they would have taken the next step in the arbitration process by exchanging salary figures with the Dodgers."

The Dodgers have not been a part of an arbitration hearing since 2007, with LHP Joe Beimel.

Jansen inked a deal for $7.425 million, Turner for $2.5 million and Nicasio for $2.3 million, per reports.

Jansen saved 44 games for the Dodgers in 2014, along with posting a 2.76 ERA. He earned $4.3 million last season in his first year of arbitration eligibility as a "super two."

Turner was a major surprise for the Dodgers last season after signing a minor-league deal with team after his release from the New York Mets. He batted a career-high .340 in 109 games for the club.

Nicasio's 5.38 ERA in 2014 might make Dodgers fans cringe on first blush, but his 3.48 in 19 relief appearances was enough to warrant another look in 2015.
