This Friday after noon, Trevor Bauer made it known that there was accepted a deal with the Dodgers. The Cy Young of the National last year he is guaranteed for at least two years with the “Blue and Whites” in exchange for US $ 85 million, plus an option in 2023 for another US $ 17 more. In total, he would earn $ 102 for three years.
According to Jon Heyman of MLB Network, Mets reportedly offered Bauer a $ 105 million contract also for three years, however, the Californian declined and chose to accept the Dodgers offer probably due to the proximity between his hometown, North Hollywood, California, and Los Angeles, which is approximately 30 minutes away by car.
The only difference between the two offers is that the Mets guaranteed him only 75 million greenbacks in his first two seasons before a contract release clause – 10 million less than what the Dodgers offered.
In this way, Trevor Bauer will join a rotation that will go from being very good, to a really fearsome and powerful one, perhaps the most solid in the Major Leagues.
