Dodgers, Billingsley agree to 1-year deal

The Los Angeles Dodgers and pitcher Chad Billingsley have agreed to a one-year deal worth $6,275,000.

The club announced the signing on Tuesday after the sides avoided arbitration.

Billingsley was 12-11 with a 3.57 ERA last season, when he earned $3.85 million. He made the All-Star team in 2009.

His deal completes the Dodgers' projected starting rotation that includes Clayton Kershaw, Hiroki Kuroda, Ted Lilly and Jon Garland, giving the team one of the deepest sets of starters in the major leagues.

The Dodgers still have two players eligible for arbitration: pitcher Hong-Chih Kuo and infielder James Loney.
