Andre Ethier: Comes to Terms With Dodgers

Posted on February 17, 2009 at 11:05 AM

NEWS UPDATE

Ethier and the Dodgers avoided arbitration, agreeing to a one-year $3.1 million contract on Tuesday, the Dodgers' official site reports.

ROTOWIRE FANTASY ANALYSIS

Ethier gets a nice raise from the $424,500 he made last year. The deal also includes some undisclosed performance bonuses. As a side note, the report also included this odd quote from GM Ned Colletti: "Neither side was tremendously happy with it, the earmark of a successful agreement." Having a guy who you hope is one of your cornerstones be "not happy' doesn't sound like much of a success to us. Dodgers fans would no doubt love to see guys like Ethier, Chad Billingsley, Matt Kemp, Russell Martin, etc. locked up to long-term deals, but the club has given no indication it is willing to do so at this point.
