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

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

Smith started the week 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, he was a first-time All-Star last year and had an impressive season with a .261 average, 19 homers, and 76 RBIs. In his six seasons with the Dodgers, he has an average of .263 with 91 homers and 308 RBIs. With this latest signing, the Dodgers now have a total commitment of $1,365,687,500 to five key players including 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.
