Dodgers Non-Tender Hong-Chih Kuo - True Blue LA
"Kuo made $2.725 million in 2011, and with six DL trips in the last five years and coming off his fifth career left elbow surgery, it's understandable why the Dodgers wouldn't want to risk paying Kuo any kind of money in arbitration. If he does come back to the team - and Ned Colletti sounds interested - it will likely be an incentive-laden deal with a low base salary."

"James Loney could face criminal charges for his involvement in a multi-car accident on the 101 Freeway last month, but the Dodgers still tendered him a contract Monday night for the 2012 season."
With Tony Gwynn Jr. For Two More Years, Dodgers Have Plenty In Reserve - True Blue LA
"When I first saw the email that said the Dodgers had signed outfielder Tony Gwynn Jr. to a two-year contract, my first reaction was to laugh. After all, Ned Colletti has had a comical obsession with two-year deals this offseason, most of which have been heavily backloaded. So naturally I thought Gwynn, who made $675,000 last year, signed for something like $750,000 in 2012 and $2.5 million in 2013, an unnecessary risk for someone who would be arbitration eligible again next season. Then I saw the terms of the deal."
