Dodgers, Dave Roberts reportedly apart on contract extension talks

Dave Roberts

The Los Angeles Dodgers and manager Dave Roberts might not be as close on contract extension talks as initially believed.

The Dodgers announced last week that they had picked up Roberts’ option for 2019. At the time, the talk seemed to be that the two sides were close on an extension that would keep Roberts under contract beyond just next season.

Fancred Sports’ Jon Heyman says that is not the case. He reports the sides are at a standstill.

Roberts just completed his third season as Dodgers manager. The team won the NL West under him in all three years and reached back-to-back World Series.

Roberts has been criticized for his managerial decisions during both series but should also be recognized for helping the team get that far after not the franchise had not been to a World Series since 1988.
