Will Smith Agrees to $140 Million, 10-Year Deal with Dodgers

Dodgers Sign Will Smith to $140 Million, 10-Year Contract, Bolstering Team’s Already Impressive Roster

Will Smith has signed a $140 million, 10-year contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers, adding to the team’s total spending of nearly $1.4 billion for five key players since December. This new deal supersedes the previous one-year agreement that was reached earlier in January.

Smith had a strong start to the week, going 5 for 10 with two RBIs as the Dodgers split a two-game series against San Diego in Seoul, South Korea. The 28-year-old was named an All-Star for the first time last year, posting a .261 batting average with 19 home runs and 76 RBIs. Throughout his six seasons with the Dodgers, Smith holds a .263 average with 91 home runs and 308 RBIs, making him a valuable asset to the team.

The signing of Smith further strengthens the Dodgers’ roster, which already 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. With this addition, the team’s total commitment to key players is now at $1,365,687,500.
