On Thursday, it was announced that the Dodgers were one of six teams that were hit with a luxury tax penalty. They will be paying $32 million in luxury tax after exceeding for a second straight year.

Here is what was said according to Ronald Blum from the AP:

The Los Angeles Dodgers were hit with a $32 million luxury tax for the second straight season, among six teams paying a penalty as baseball payrolls rebounded after the lockout to a record $4.56 billion.

The Dodgers were assessed at a higher rate as they exceeded the threshold for the second straight year, and owe exactly $32.4 million on a luxury tax payroll of $293.3 million. They were charged $32.6 million in 2021.

The other teams paying the penalty are the New York Mets, Philadelphia Phillies, New York Yankees, San Diego Padres and Boston Red Sox.
