Los Angeles Dodgers Sign Talented Starting Pitcher

The two sides came to an agreement.

The Los Angeles Dodgers and starter Tony Gonsolin have avoided arbitration by agreeing to a two-year, $6.65 million contract.

Rather than going to his first arbitration as a Super 2 player this year, the two sides worked out a deal that will pay the talented pitcher $6.65 million over the next two seasons.

Gonsolin will still have two more seasons of arbitration eligibility before he hits free agency after the 2026 season.

The twenty-eight-year-old posted a sparkling 2.14 ERA, 0.88 WHIP, and 119 strikeouts over 130.1 innings last season. He made 24 starts and held a league-leading 16-1 record. 

The four-year veteran is a former ninth-round pick of the Dodgers in the 2016 MLB Draft.

Gonsolin more than doubled his previous career-high in innings pitched last year, going from 55 to 130, so expect the team to be a little looser with his innings restriction this season.
