After announcing 12-year contract worth US$325 million By Right-hander Yoshinobu Yamamoto The Dodgers introduced the Japanese star in a news conference at Dodger Stadium on Wednesday.

“I am thrilled to be a member of this historic franchise and cannot express how important it is to be able to call Los Angeles my new home,” Yamamoto said.

The deal, which includes a $50 million signing bonus, has no deferred money and includes opt-out provisions after years six and eight, according to a source. The guaranteed money is a record for a major league player, surpassing Gerrit Cole's contract with the Yankees by $1 million (nine years, $324 million), although Cole has an average annual sum of plus something.

This contract follows that of fellow Japanese player Shohei Ohtani, who signed a 10-year deal worth US$700 million earlier this month, an agreement that includes unprecedented deferred money.

“I wouldn't say (Ohtani) was the only reason I decided to come,” Yamamoto said. “Even if he had decided to sign with another team, I probably would have ended up in Los Angeles as a Dodger.”

Yamamoto, 25, is considered a potential leader of the rotation, despite his physical fitness. At five-foot-10, the right-hander's repertoire includes a 94-99 mph fastball and multiple secondary pitches to destroy hitters: the famous curveball, split-fingered fastball and cutter/slider.
