Star outfielder Mookie Betts and the Los Angeles Dodgers have agreed to a 12-year deal, worth over $365 million.
Outfielder Mookie Betts and the Los Angeles Dodgers are in agreement on a 12-year, $365 million contract extension, sources familiar with the deal tell ESPN. Combined with the one-year, $27 million deal he’s currently under, the total is 13 years and $392 million.— Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan) July 22, 2020
With so much uncertainty about this year and free agency moving forward, it makes all the sense in the world for Mookie to lockdown a long term deal with the Dodgers. As a Red Sox fan, I hoped beyond hope that Mookie would play one year with the Dodgers and then come home for the rest of his career, but alas that will not happen. Betts and Cody Bellinger are going to be LOADS of fun to watch play together for years to come.
