Dodgers catchers Austin Barnes has agreed to a two-year deal worth $4.3 million to avoid arbitration, a source told MLB.com's Mark Feinsand on Sunday. the club has not confirmed the deal.
The Dodgers avoided going to a hearing with every arbitration eligible player this offseason. Buehler also just this past week signed a deal that was two-years and worth $8million. Barnes was seeking a $2M M salary for the 2021 season and the Dodgers countered with a $1.5MM figure, but the new deal both avoids a hearing and locks Barnes up for both of his remaining arbitration years.
The catcher is still scheduled to hit free agency following the 2022 season.
