5 key players in LA have received a $1.4 billion investment.

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

At just 28 years old, Smith had an impressive first season with the Dodgers in 2020, earning his first All-Star nod and hitting .261 with 19 homers and 76 RBIs. Over the past six seasons with the team, he has maintained an average of .263 with 91 homers and 308 RBIs. With this latest contract, Smith will be under the Dodgers’ umbrella until after the 2025 season.

With this signing, the Dodgers now have a total commitment of $1,365,687,500 to five key players – including 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 Hernandez ($23.5 million for one year), and now Will Smith as well.
