The coveted pitcher Trevor Bauer will continue his great baseball career with the Los Angeles Dodgers.
The 30-year-old shooter himself announced on Friday, in a video he posted on YouTube.
Bauer has initialed a three-year contract that gives him $ 102 million. In particular, he will earn $ 40 million in 2021 and $ 45 million in 2022. This will make him the highest paid player in the major leagues in these two campaigns.
In addition, right-wingers have escape clauses after each of the first two seasons of their new deal.
According to the MLB Network, the free agent recently limited the list of potential destinations to two teams, the defending world league champions and the New York Mets.
Bauer had his best career campaign in 2020. In 11 starts with the Cincinnati Reds, he has maintained a 5-4 record and an impressive 1.73 deserved running average.
The native of California was picked up by the Reds in a monster deal that also involved the Cleveland Indians and San Diego Padres in July 2019. He had previously spent nearly nine seasons in the Indians’ organization.
The UCLA University product was Arizona Diamondback’s first round (third overall) in the 2010 draft, but has only made four appearances for the club in the major leagues.
