Reports: Dodgers signing C Will Smith to 10-year extension

Will Smith dodgers

The Los Angeles Dodgers are finalizing a 10-year contract extension for catcher Will Smith worth $140 million, ESPN and MLB.com reported Wednesday.

The deal will include deferred compensation, per MLB.com. Ten years would mark the longest contract for a catcher in MLB history and keep Smith in Dodger blue through the 2033 season.

Smith and the Dodgers had agreed to a deal worth $8.55 million for this season, avoiding arbitration. He’ll now earn $14 million in 2024.

Smith turns 29 on Thursday.

Smith, who bats cleanup in the Dodgers’ order, is coming off his first All-Star season. He hit .261 with 19 home runs and 76 RBIs in 2023. He’s off to a 5-for-10 start this season after the two-game set vs. San Diego last week in South Korea.

Smith, a first-round pick in the 2016 draft, owns a career slash line of .263/.358/.484 with 91 home runs and 308 RBIs.
