Dodgers Sign All-Star Will Smith to a $140 Million Contract Extension

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

The Los Angeles Dodgers have recently signed catcher Will Smith to a $140 million, 10-year contract, adding to the team’s total spending of nearly $1.4 billion for five key players since December. This new deal supersedes the previous $8.85 million, 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 extension of Will Smith’s contract is great news for the Los Angeles Dodgers as it ensures that they will have one of their top players under their control for another decade. With this signing, the Dodgers have committed a total of $1,365,687,500 to 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. This spending spree shows that the Dodgers are committed to building a winning team and are willing to invest in their top players to do so.
