New Los Angeles Dodgers reliever Corey Knebel agreed to a $5.25 million, one-year contract on Thursday that avoided salary arbitration, and pitcher Dylan Floro agreed to $975,000.

Dodgers re-sign reliever Blake Treinen to a two-year deal

The Los Angeles Dodgers revealed on Tuesday they’ve re-signed hard-throwing reliever Blake Treinen to a two-year contract, fortifying the back end of their bullpen by bringing back one of the key cogs in their championship run.
