Dodgers re-sign Charlie Culberson.

The Dodgers re-signed utility player Charlie Culberson to a one-year contract Thursday. He will make $550,000.

Culberson, 27, slashed .284/.294/.373 in his first season as a Dodger, splitting the season between Los Angeles and Triple-A Oklahoma City. He only appeared in 38 major league games, but four came in the postseason and another in the Dodgers’ 10-inning win over the Rockies on Aug. 25, in which Culberson hit his only home run of the season to win the game and clinch a National League West title.

SInce he was not yet eligible for arbitration, Culberson was under no deadline to sign with the Dodgers this week.
