Walker Buehler & Dodgers Agree To 2-Year Deal To Avoid Arbitration

The Dodgers will reportedly not be going to arbitration with Walker Buehler.

According to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic, the Los Angeles Dodgers avoided that process by signing the right-hander to a two-year, $8 million contract that features a $2 million signing bonus, $2.75 million in salary in 2021 and $3.25 million in salary in 2022. Buehler has been with the Dodgers his entire career and burst onto the scene in 2018 with a 2.62 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 151 strikeouts in 137.1 innings.

He followed that up with his first All-Star selection in 2019 and finished the year with a 3.26 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 215 strikeouts in 182.1 innings but dealt with some injuries and made just eight starts with a 3.44 ERA.
