Dodgers Commit $1.4 Billion to Key Players in Record-Breaking Contract Renewals

The Los Angeles Dodgers have agreed to a $140 million, 10-year contract with catcher Will Smith, bringing their spending on key players to nearly $1.4 billion since December. This new deal supersedes a one-year agreement worth $8.85 million that was previously reached in January.

Smith, who is just 28 years old, had an impressive season last year and was named an All-Star for the first time in his career. He hit .261 with 19 homers and 76 RBIs in 2020. Over the past six seasons with the Dodgers, Smith has averaged .263 with 91 homers and 308 RBIs.

With this latest signing, the Dodgers now have a total commitment of $1,365,687,500 to five key players. This includes two-way star Shohei Ohtani ($700 million for 10 years), right-handers Yoshinobu Yamamoto ($325 million for 12 years) and Tyler Glasnow ($136,562,500 for five years), outfielder Teoscar Hernández ($23.5 million for one year), and now Will Smith as well.
