Dodgers sign Tony Cingrani, tender contract offers to arbitration-eligible players

LOS ANGELES — The Dodgers tendered contract offers to all of their arbitration-eligible players before Friday’s deadline except reliever Pat Venditte, who was designated for assignment earlier this week. They also reached a contract agreement for 2019 with left-hander Tony Cingrani.

Cingrani will return in 2019 for a reported $2.65 million salary. Nine other players could go to arbitration hearings if they don’t reach contract agreements with the Dodgers – outfielders Yasiel Puig and Joc Pederson, shortstop Corey Seager, starting pitcher Alex Wood, infielders/outfielders Kiké Hernandez and Chris Taylor and relief pitchers Josh Fields, Pedro Baez and Yimi Garcia.

Cingrani, 29, made two trips to the DL with shoulder issues last season, missing more than three months the second time and returning to pitch just one-third of an inning in late September before being shut down again.

But he was effective at times when healthy, posting a 4.76 ERA with 36 strikeouts in 22-2/3 innings over 30 appearances. Left-handed batters were 7 for 35 (.200) with 17 strikeouts against him last season.
