Los Angeles Dodgers Sign Pitcher Trevor Bauer to 3-year, $102M Contract
The rich keep getting richer.
The reigning NL Cy Young winner Trevor Bauer has agreed to a three-year, $102 million deal with the Los Angeles Dodgers, according to ESPN.
Trevor Bauer's three-year deal with the Dodgers is for $102 million guaranteed -- and for $40 million in 2021 and $45 million in 2022. He can opt out after each year, meaning he'll make $40M if he opts out this year, $85M if he does so after 2022 and $102M if he stays all three.— Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan) February 5, 2021
As ESPN's Jeff Passan reported, this deal includes an opt-out after each year, so this could essentially be a one-year, $40 million pact.
The Dodgers' rotation, which was already one of the best in the league, is now completely stacked.

Bauer finished the 2020 campaign with a 5-4 record and a 1.73 ERA.
