LOS ANGELES — The Dodgers reached agreement with their seven arbitration-eligible players around Friday.

Friday was the deadline to get unsigned arbitration-eligible players and their teams to exchange figures that would be used in a February hearing to determine their salary.

Even though discussions could have continued until the hearings, under the Dodgers’ present regime the club has warned against players that they will visit a hearing, maybe perhaps not pay off after the exchange of all amounts. Because it failed on Friday, the strategy efficiently results in settlements, and perhaps because current president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman moved 5-0 in hearings while with Tampa Bay.

During a hearing, even a three-member arbitration panel weighs arguments from the team and player and chooses one particular side’s salary figure or the other.

Since the beginning of salary arbitration 43 decades back, the Dodgers have been 14-6 in cases decided by a hearing and 61 in the last seven cases dating to 1991. That includes the most recent hearings using Joe Beimel in 2007 and Eric Gagne in’04.

The very last player to gain a hearing against the Dodgers was Terry Adams in 2001. The club initial mediation case was 1975, when Ron Cey was given a salary of $56,000 instead of their club entry of 47,000.
