It looks like Mookie Betts will remain in L.A. for a long time.
According to WEEI's Lou Merloni, Betts and the Dodgers are close to a massive contract extension. The deal is said to be for 10-plus years and worth between $350-400 million. Back in January, Merloni reported the Red Sox offered Betts a 10-year, $300 million deal in the 2019 offseason and he countered with 12 years and $420 million.
Betts, who was traded to the Dodgers this offseason, was scheduled to be a free agent after the season.
“The market will be what the market will be. Cross that bridge when we get there," he told reporters earlier this month.
