Mookie Betts, Dodgers Agree To Massive 13-Year, $392 Million Contract

AP Sports Writer

LOS ANGELES (AP) – Mookie Betts and the Los Angeles Dodgers struck baseball’s first big-money deal since the coronavirus pandemic decimated the sport’s economics, a $365 million contract through 2032 that removes the top offensive player from next offseason’s free-agent class. The outfielder was acquired by the Dodgers from the Boston Red Sox on Feb. 10 along with pitcher David Price for three players. Betts had agreed to a $27 million, one-year deal with the Red Sox, a salary that has been reduced to $10 million in prorated pay because of the shortened season.
