Proctor finalizes 1-year deal

Add Scott Proctor to the list of people who have agreed to a deal before heading into arbitration. He signed a 1-year/$1.115 million deal. He wanted $1.3 million, so I'd say he didn't do too badly for himself.

Proctor was traded to the Dodgers from the Yankees last year for Wilson Betemit at the trade deadline. Appearing in 31 games for LA, he went 3-0 with a 3.38 ERA and 1.25 WHIP. Pretty good numbers in my opinion. In the month of September (you know, that month where practically the entire team crashed and burned), he only gave up 3 earned runs, lowering his overall ERA from 3.91 to 3.65.

Along with Joe Beimel (who's the last guy on the arbitration-eligible list) and Yhency Brazoban, Proctor will again play a big role in bridging the gap between the starters and the Broxton-Saito 8-9 inning connection.
