Dodgers Sign All-Star Catcher Will Smith to $140 Million Contract, Boosting Total Commitment to Key Players

The Los Angeles Dodgers have signed catcher Will Smith to a $140 million, 10-year contract, bringing their total commitment to key players to nearly $1.4 billion since December. This new deal supersedes an earlier agreement with Smith that was worth $8.85 million for one year, which he started off strong by going 5 for 10 with two RBIs during a two-game series in Seoul, South Korea against San Diego.

At just 28 years old, Smith is a first-time All-Star who had a standout season with a .261 average, 19 homers, and 76 RBIs. In his six seasons with the Dodgers, he has maintained an impressive average of .263 with 91 homers and 308 RBIs. This latest signing means that Smith will be under contract until after the 2025 season.

With this newest addition to their roster, 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.
