Dodgers renew Bellinger, Seager's contracts

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Corey Seager and Cody Bellinger are award-winning Dodgers, but they are still among the lowest paid.

The team unilaterally renewed Seager for the second consecutive year and renewed the contracts of reigning National League Rookie of the Year Award winner Bellinger, center fielder Chris Taylor and catcher Austin Barnes.

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Corey Seager and Cody Bellinger are award-winning Dodgers, but they are still among the lowest paid.

The team unilaterally renewed Seager for the second consecutive year and renewed the contracts of reigning National League Rookie of the Year Award winner Bellinger, center fielder Chris Taylor and catcher Austin Barnes.

Seager, who renewed at $575,000 last year after his NL Rookie of the Year Award-winning season in 2016, received a $30,000 raise to $605,000 after his second consecutive NL All-Star campaign. Bellinger was renewed at $585,000, Taylor at $575,000 and Barnes at $555,000.

Seager will be eligible for salary arbitration after the 2018 season, when his pay will multiply. Bellinger will be subject to renewal again after this season. If Barnes is in the Major Leagues for all of '18, he will have two years and 121 days of service time. The cutoff for the most recent class of Super Two arbitration-eligibles was two years and 123 days, so Barnes will be on the bubble.

Contracts signed by players not yet eligible for arbitration include Rob Segedin, Brock Stewart, Ross Stripling (all $555,000) and Alex Verdugo ($547,500).
