Dodgers and Gonsolin agree to 2-year, $6.65 million contract

LOS ANGELES (AP) — All-Star pitcher Tony Gonsolin and the Los Angeles Dodgers agreed to a two-year, $6.65 million contract Tuesday that avoided an arbitration hearing.

Gonsolin gets $3.25 million this year and $3.4 million in 2024.

His salary in the second season could rise to $3 million based on a points system in which he would be credited with one point for each start, or each 3 1/3 inning relief appearance — $500,000 each for 14, 16, 18, 20, 24 and 28 points. The 2024 salary would also increase by $1,125,000 for winning a Cy Young Award this year, $625,000 for finishing second or third in the voting and $500,000 for finishing fourth or fifth.

The sides exchanged salary proposals on Jan. 13, with Gonsolin asking for a raise from $720,000 last season to $3.4 million this year, while the Dodgers offered $3 million.

The 28-year-old right-hander was 16-1 with a 2.14 ERA and 119 strikeouts in 24 starts during a breakout season last year. Gonsolin earned his first All-Star selection with an 11-0 record and a 2.02 ERA in the first half. He finished with the highest winning percentage (.941) in franchise history.
