Dodgers have highest payroll in MLB


Here’s yet another way that LA beats New York, although, I’m not sure if this is the victory you’re looking for. The Dodgers have overtaken the Yankees’ 15-year run as the team having the highest payroll in the MLB.

The Dodgers will have a projected payroll of $253 million. next up is the Yankees at $204 million. A huge reason behind their dip in salary is Alex Rodriguez’s season-long suspension. That means of the $25 million he was owed, he’ll only receive #3,868,852.

The Yankees are followed by Philadelphia at $180 million, Boston at $163 million and Detroit at $162 million. Houston is last in the MLB at $45 million, up from $27 million at the start of last year.
