The Dodgers made official their contract for infielder Hanser Alberto on Wednesday, signing him to a one-year contract plus a club option for 2023. To make room on the 40-man roster, Matt Beaty was designated for assignment.
Alberto’s contract is worth $1.85 million guaranteed, with a $1.6 million salary in 2022 and a $2 million club option for 2023. If that option isn’t exercised by the team, Alberto will receive a $250,000 buyout. The signing was reported about 10 days ago where Alberto was stuck in the Dominican Republic while going through visa issues as he said on Sunday.
It’s unlikely Beaty would clear waivers, and perhaps could draw trade interest in the next week. His next destination will be determined soon.
