Dodgers File For Bankruptcy: Here's Who's Owed What

LA Dodgers

The Los Angeles Dodgers filed for bankruptcythis morning and have promised that all players will get paid.

That being said, the players are of course the largest creditors in the filing.

Here's the list of who is owed the most and what they are owed:

  1. Manny Ramirez, $20,992,086
  2. Andruw Jones, $11,075,000
  3. Hiroki Kuroda, $4,483,516
  4. Rafael Furcal, $3,725,275
  5. Chicago White Sox, $3,500,000
  6. Ted Lilly, $3,423,077
  7. Zach Lee, $3,400,000
  8. Kaz Ishii, $3,300,000
  9. Juan Uribe, $3,241,758
  10. Matt Guerrier, $3,090,659

Other creditors include: Marquis Grissom ($2,719,146), who last played for the Dodgers in 2002, and long-time Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully, who is owed $152,778.

Scott Boras happens to be the agent to the top two creditors, Manny Ramirez and Andruw Jones, who are owed a combined $32,067,086. Agents take between a two and four percent commission, so Boras would be owed as little as $641,342 and as much as $1,282,683 off those two players alone.
