$1.4 billion invested by LA in five crucial players

Dodgers and Will Smith Sign Groundbreaking 10-Year Contract Worth $140 Million

The Los Angeles Dodgers and Catcher Will Smith agreed on a $140 million, 10-year contract on Wednesday. This new deal replaces an earlier agreement for $8.85 million over one year that was reached in January.

Smith had a strong performance in a two-game series against San Diego in Seoul, South Korea, going 5 for 10 with two RBIs last week. Last year, he made his first appearance as an All-Star and finished the season with a .261 batting average, 19 home runs, and 76 RBIs.

Smith has been with the Dodgers for six seasons, boasting a .263 career batting average along with 91 home runs and 308 RBIs. He would have been eligible for free agency after the 2025 season if not for this new long-term contract.

The Dodgers have now locked in significant commitments to star players like Shohei Ohtani, Yoshinobu Yamamoto, Tyler Glasnow, Teoscar Hernández, and Smith, with a total investment of $1,365,687,500 across these five players.
