Los Angeles Dodgers Bring Back All-Star Utilityman

The Los Angeles Dodgers have re-signed Chris Taylor to a four-year, $60 million. It also comes with a 2026 club option that can allow the contract to get up to a maximum of $73 million.
There is no question that this has been a tough offseason for the Dodgers so far, as they lost both Max Scherzer and Corey Seager. There were plenty of teams in on Taylor, so it wasn't a lock that the 31-year-old would return to LA. Thus, it's fantastic that the Dodgers were able to keep him around. 

Taylor is such a nice player to have on your roster, as he plays outfielder, shortstop and second base. Thus, there is always a spot for him on the field and that certainly comes in handy when injuries inevitably occur. 

The 2021 campaign was a massive one for Taylor, too. In 148 games, he had 20 home runs, 73 RBIs and a .254 batting average. With that, he made the first All-Star Game of his career. It was perfect timing, as he of course was due for his big contract and now he officially has it.
