NO CUTBACKS: In L.A., Dylan Hernandez reported the Dodgers' Opening Day payroll was "higher this year than it was in 2009, when the team made its last playoff appearance." Counting the five players who are on the DL, the Dodgers "will pay the players on their opening-day roster more than $95 million." They also are "on the hook for an additional $15 million-plus in salary deferments from previous seasons." The $95M figure "marks a significant increase from last season," when the Dodgers opened the season with an $83M payroll (L.A. TIMES, 4/2).
