Bauer to Wear L.A. Blue

Breaking: National League Cy Young winner Trevor Bauer announced that he’s signing a deal with the Dodgers. — SportsCenter (@SportsCenter) February 5, 2021

Trevor Bauer gets $102M for 3 years from Dodgers, per source. He has opt outs after each of the first two years; $40M in 2021, $45M in 2022. He’ll be the highest-paid player in MLB history in ’21, then again in ’22. Good job by @AgentRachelLuba & Jon Fetterolf of @zssports_law. — Mark Feinsand (@Feinsand) February 5, 2021

Trevor Bauer’s reported salary in 2021 ($40 million, per @Feinsand) is larger than the current 2021 payrolls of the Indians, Pirates and Orioles, according to Spotrac. (h/t @jnorris427). — Kyle Glaser (@KyleAGlaser) February 5, 2021

This is exactly the kind of contract structure the #Dodgers would prefer, especially for an elite pitcher. They’d much rather pay a higher AAV for a shorter number of years. — Mike DiGiovanna (@MikeDiGiovanna) February 5, 2021

I think Trevor Bauer getting paid as much as some teams’ entire payrolls this season says a lot more about those teams than it does Bauer or the Dodgers. — Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan) February 5, 2021
