Dodgers extend qualifying offers to Greinke, Kendrick, Anderson

first_imgContract options declinedThe Dodgers will not pick up the 2016 contract options on second baseman Chase Utley, reliever Joel Peralta and starter Bronson Arroyo.Peralta, who turns 40 in March, is the only one of the three who spent all year with the Dodgers. His season was interrupted by a nerve issue that affected his triceps in April. Peralta also missed time in late August with a separate neck issue, then returned in September and pitched better than he had all season (two earned runs, .129 opponents’ BA, 0.44 WHIP in nine innings). He also threw a scoreless inning in the National League Division Series.The team option called for Peralta to make $2.5 million next year. According to a source, the Dodgers have expressed interest in talking to Peralta’s agent later in the off-season.After being acquired in an August trade with the Philadelphia Phillies, Utley made his most memorable contribution to the Dodgers in Game 2 of the NLDS. His takeout slide into Mets shortstop Ruben Tejada broke Tejada’s leg and ultimately drew a two-game suspension from MLB. It also keyed a four-run rally that led to the Dodgers’ only home win of the series.While his baserunning was never an issue, Utley’s .202/.291/.363 slash line and age (36) didn’t lead a second year in Los Angeles at a cost of $5 million or more.Arroyo never appeared in a Dodgers uniform on or off the field in 2015. He was a throw-in to the three-team, 13-player trade that sent Hector Olivera to Atlanta and Mat Latos, Alex Wood, Jim Johnson, Luis Avilan and Jose Peraza to the Dodgers. His option year was valued at $13 million.Ruggiano, Heisey become free agentsOutfielders Justin Ruggiano and Chris Heisey elected to become free agents Friday.Ruggiano, 33, declined an outright assignment to the minor leagues.He played 24 games for the Dodgers after he was acquired from the Seattle Mariners for cash on Aug. 31. He slashed .291/.350/.618 in the regular season, batting almost entirely against left-handed pitchers. He went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts in three playoff games against the Mets.A 2004 Dodgers draft pick, Ruggiano would have been eligible for salary arbitration at the end of the season. He made $2.5 million in 2015.Heisey, 30, shuffled back-and-forth to Triple-A Oklahama City often during his only season as a Dodger. In 33 major league games, Heisey batted .182 with two home runs and nine RBIs. He saw time at all three outfield positions.The Dodgers’ 40-man roster now stands at 32, plus four pitchers (Lisalverto Bonilla, Brandon McCarthy, Josh Ravin and Hyun-Jin Ryu) on the 60-day disabled list.Honeycutt gets two-year dealRick Honeycutt will remain the Dodgers’ pitching coach through 2017, according to CBSsports.com. The report claims that Honeycutt’s new two-year contract will pay him $750,000 each of the next two years.Honeycutt is entering his 11th season as the Dodgers’ pitching coach, having worked under three managers already: Grady Little, Joe Torre and Don Mattingly.The Dodgers lost first base coach Davey Lopes to the Washington Nationals this week. Kendrick, 32, enters a market with Daniel Murphy and Ben Zobrist also competing for money from multiple teams with an impending need at second base, including the Dodgers. After batting .295 in his first National League season, Kendrick figures to get a significant raise from the four-year, $33.5 million contract he signed prior to the 2012 season — more significant than the qualifying offer provides.Anderson’s situation is less straightforward.The 27-year-old left-hander went 10-9 with a 3.69 earned-run average in his first season with the Dodgers. More significantly, he set career highs in starts (31) and innings pitched (180 ⅓) while avoiding the disabled list entirely for the first time since 2009.That injury history could work against Anderson again if teams consider his streak of good health to be a fluke. Alternately, Anderson could parlay his strong season into a multi-year deal.Anderson achieved $2.4 million in incentives on top of his $10 million base salary. The Dodgers extended qualifying offers to Zack Greinke, Brett Anderson and Howie Kendrick on Friday. If any of the three players doesn’t sign the one-year, $15.8 million deal, the Dodgers would receive a compensation-round draft pick (between the first and second rounds) in 2016.No player has ever signed a qualifying offer in the three years they’ve been available under baseball’s current Collective Bargaining Agreement.Greinke, Anderson and Kendrick have seven days to accept or reject the offer.Greinke will certainly reject the offer after a season in which he set career lows in earned-run average (1.66), WHIP (0.844) and winning percentage (.864), all of which led the major leagues. At 32 years old, Greinke is considered the top free agent right-handed pitcher in baseball.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
