AP source: Pollock agrees to $55M, 4-year deal with Dodgers

January 24, 2019

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A person familiar with the negotiations says free-agent outfielder AJ Pollock and the Los Angeles Dodgers have agreed to a $55 million, four-year contract.

The person spoke Thursday on condition of anonymity because the agreement has not been announced .The deal includes a $10 million player option for 2023 with a $5 million buyout that would make the deal worth over $60 million during the four years.

Pollock gives the Dodgers a right-handed bat to complement its deep lineup. The 31-year-old outfielder hit .257 last year with 21 home runs, 65 RBIs and 13 stolen bases in 113 games for NL West rival Arizona.

He missed nearly two months with a broken left thumb, the latest in a long line of injuries that have limited Pollock to 113 games since his breakout All-Star season in 2015.

Pollock can opt out after the 2022 season and $45 million and become a free agent again if he meets specified plate appearance thresholds.
