David’s Price is $1,000 to every minor league player signed to an LA Dodger contract, per Francys Romero.
The Los Angeles Dodgers, who traded for Price this past offseason in a blockbuster deal with the Boston Red Sox, had nine minor-league affiliates across the USA and Dominican Republic in 2019. With the MLB proposal for the owners, Price may very well go from making $32M in 2020 to only $5.2M, but between his time with the Tampa Bay Rays, Detroit Tigers, Toronto Blue Jays and Boston Red Sox, he has already made over $200M over his career. The 5x All-Star and AL Cy Young Award winning southpaw will make at least $64M in 2021 and 2022 donning Dodger blue.
As Romero points out, he hasn’t even played a regular season game at Chavez Ravine as a member of the home team. During a global pandemic, Price is being the team leader he’s always been and pulling a number of players he’s never even met, giving them far more financial security during a trying time. We here at PSE commend Mr. Price and wish him the best of luck the next time he takes the mound.
