Will Smith signs a 10-year, $140 million contract with the Dodgers

The Los Angeles Dodgers announced on Wednesday that they have signed catcher Will Smith to a 10-year, $140 million contract. This move brings the team’s total spending on key players to nearly $1.4 billion since December.

Smith started the week strong by going 5 for 10 with two RBIs during a two-game series against San Diego in Seoul, South Korea. The 28-year-old catcher was named an All-Star for the first time last year after hitting .261 with 19 home runs and 76 RBIs. Throughout his six seasons with the Dodgers, Smith has maintained a .263 batting average with 91 home runs and 308 RBIs. He would have been eligible for free agency after the 2025 season.

The Dodgers’ commitment to building a competitive roster for the future is evident through their financial investments in top talent. In addition to signing Will Smith, they have also made significant commitments to other key players such as 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.
