Dodgers News: Chris Hatcher and Team Settle On 2016 Contract

One of the six Dodgers to file for arbitration yesterday has come to an agreement with the team on their 2016 salary.

31-year old Chris Hatcher has agreed to settle for $1.065 million with the Dodgers, and that means he will be back. The former catcher now turned reliever had a 3.69 ERA last season while racking up 45 strikeouts in 39 innings.

MLB Network Insider Jon Heyman (@JonHeyman) broke the news a few minutes ago:

Hatcher now returns for his second season with the Dodgers after the club acquired him in December 2014 in the Dee Gordon trade. Steamer projects Hatcher for a 3.19 ERA this coming season while Marcels projects him at 3.96.

Either way, this is a bargain for the Dodgers, and cheap bullpen arms that are serviceable are seemingly tough to come by for contending teams these days.
