Dodgers full postseason shares for 2022 worth $36,148 each

NLDS: Dodgers vs Padres

Major League Baseball unveiled the 2022 postseason shares, the pool for which this year included two extra teams in the playoffs and an expanded wild card round. Full postseason shares for Dodgers players this year was $36,148.

Per the collective bargaining agreement, the players’ postseason pool is derived from gate receipts for every single round. Going from two wild card games to four wild card series of three games each added to the total, with this year’s $107.5-million total pool up 18.8 percent from $90.5 million in 2021.

The pool gets split up as follows: 36 percent to the World Series winner (this year, the Astros), 24 percent to team that lost the World Series (Phillies), 12 percent to each LCS runner-up (Yankees, Padres), 3.25 percent to each LDS losing team (Dodgers, Braves, Guardians, Mariners), and 0.75 percent to each wild card series losing team (Mets, Cardinals, Rays, Blue Jays).

The Dodgers’ total pool came out to $3,494,102. They distributed 82 full shares valued at $36,148 apiece, plus 13.24 partial shares and a total of $51,501 in cash awards. Near the end of the season, players vote on who gets what, but considering we have 64 player reviews planned for 2022 and that the Dodgers had 51 players play for them last season, several others were voted to receive full shares.

Here’s a look at the Dodgers’ postseason pools from the last decade.
