Per Ken Rosenthal, the Dodgers have signed free-agent outfielder A.J. Pollock to a deal. Here’s a report as to what the deal looks like.
Confirmed. Pollock can opt-out after three years, earn $55M if deal is four, $60M he exercises fifth-year player option. Spreading out AAV helps #Dodgers with luxury-tax payroll. Player option considered guaranteed in luxury-tax calculation. Credit to Jeff and @Buster_ESPN. https://t.co/zyDhLSotL3— Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal) January 24, 2019
Pollock, 31, is a familiar face to the Dodgers. He spent the last seven seasons as a member of the D-Backs. He was an All-Star in 2015, as well as a Gold Glove winner.
In 2018, he hit 21 home runs and drove in 55 runs. He hit .257, but had an OPS of .800.
Health is the biggest concern with Pollock, as he has only appeared in more than 113 games once in a season since 2014.
Earlier in the off-season, LA parted ways with outfielders Yasiel Puig and Matt Kemp. In recent days, outfielder Joc Pederson has been involved with rumors as well.
