Ellis agrees to one-year deal with Dodgers

LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Dodgers have avoided arbitration with catcher A.J. Ellis and right-handed reliever Ronald Belisario, agreeing to one-year deals with both players.

Ellis will make $2 million and Belisario will get $1,450,000 in the deals reached Friday.

Ellis batted .270 with 13 homers and 52 RBIs in his first season as a regular with the Dodgers, playing in 133 games. He made $490,000 last season.

Belisario went 8-1 with a 2.54 ERA while pitching 71 innings last season in an impressive comeback after serving a 25-game suspension for testing positive for cocaine. He also missed the entire 2011 season with visa problems, but made $480,000 last season.

The Dodgers have no more potential arbitration cases.

Ellis played high school baseball at Lexington's Paul Laurence Dunbar.
