Cole Hamels Made $1 Million to Never Throw a Pitch for the Dodgers

SJ - August 17, 2021

Back on August 4th the Dodgers signed left-hander Cole Hamels.  They were hoping that he would be able to add some depth to the pitching staff as they prepare for a run at back-to-back World Series titles.

That's not going to happen now.  Just a couple weeks after signing him the Dodgers placed the 37-year-old on the 60 day disabled list.

The Dodgers will still have to pay Hamels the $1 million he signed for.  Not bad work if you can get it.  Hamels is going to make $1 million without throwing a single pitch for the Dodgers.
