And then there was one. Alex Wood has reportedly agreed to a $6 million deal for 2018, avoiding salary arbitration, per Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports.
Wood joins teammates Yasmani Grandal, Tony Cingrani, Josh Fields, Kiké Hernandez and Pedro Baez in reaching deals in the last 24 hours. That leaves only Joc Pederson yet without a deal, or at least one that hasn’t yet been announced.
The Dodgers haven’t announced any of the deals yet.
Wood made his first All-Star team in 2017, going 16-3 with a 2.72 ERA in his 27 games, including 25 starts, with 151 strikeouts and 38 walks in 152⅓ innings.
With four years, 123 days of service time this is Wood’s second time through salary arbitration after making $2.8 million in 2017.
MLB Trade Rumors projected a salary fo $6.4 million for Wood, while I guessed $6.55 million.
