Dodgers News and Notes – Tony Gonsolin Extended, 2023 Coaching Staff Announced

During arbitration, the Los Angeles Dodgers had reached agreement with every one of their eligible except for one. On Tuesday, the Dodgers and Tony Gonsolin agreed to a two-year contract, good through the 2024 season.

Gonsolin and the Dodgers had not been far apart in their asks during arbitration. Gonsolin filed at $3.4M, and the Dodgers countered with $3M.

Ultimately the two sides agreed at a two year deal, worth $6.64M. The contract breaks down to $3.25M for 2023, and $3.4M for 2024.

The deal also includes escalators for 2024’s base salary based off starts in 2023: $500K each for 14, 16, 18, 20, 24 and 28 games starts. There also are Cy Young bonuses included in the contract.

The 28 year old righty had a career year in 2022, making his first All-Star appearance. He made 24 starts, going 16-1 with a 2.14 ERA, including going 11-0 in the first half of the season.

Gonsolin hit the injured list in August, and returned just before the playoffs. He pitched in one game against the San Diego Padres, allowing one run in 1.1 innings.

In other Dodgers news, on Wednesday the Dodgers announced their coaching staff for the upcoming season. The crew pretty much remains the same, with one notable exception. Bob Geren, Manager Dave Roberts’ long time Bench Coach, will be moving to a roll as major league field coordinator. He will be replaced by Danny Lehmann. Lehmann has spent the past three seasons as the team’s game planning & communications coach.

The only other change from last year is that Aaron Bates will replace Brant Brown as co-hitting coach. Brown has hired by the Miami Marlins earlier in the offseason.
