Dodgers hit with $36.2M luxury tax, Yanks with $15.7M

UPDATED: Tue., Dec. 19, 2017, 7:47 p.m.

The Los Angeles Dodgers will pay baseball’s highest luxury tax for the fourth straight year and the New York Yankees owe a penalty for a 15th consecutive season, streaks that could end as the sport’s biggest spenders slash payroll for 2018. The Dodgers owe $36.2 million, according to final figures compiled by the commissioner’s office and obtained by The Associated Press. That raises their five-year tax total to nearly $150 million. The Yankees were second at $15.7 million.

Some of the public discourse surrounding a KeyArena renovation proposal had gotten out of whack, and speculation had affected perceptions of the venue and Leiweke’s plans for it.
