The Los Angeles Dodgers have signed outfielder Andre Ethier to a 1-year, $11 million deal according to his agency. The deal allows both Ethier and the club to avoid arbitration, and could be a precursor to some larger 1-year deals we'll be seeing today:

"Ethier, who will turn 30 on April 10, hit .292/.368/.421 with 11 home runs in 135 games. He became the second Dodger ever with a 30-game hitting streak in 2011, falling one game shy of the club record, set by Willie Davis in 1969. Ethier had his season hampered by a knee injury that not only sapped most of his power but also ended his season in earlier September, when Ethier and the club jointly decided to have surgery and end his season."
