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.
