Breaking down the Dodgers' $310-million payroll

Breaking down the Dodgers' $310-million payroll
A large chunk of the Dodgers’ record-setting $300 million payroll in 2015 was spent on players no longer with the team.

The Dodgers won't be beat in at least one major league category this season: No team will outspend them on players.

The team's record-setting payroll has surpassed $300 million, with a large chunk of that money -- more than the total player payroll for some MLB teams -- spent on players who no longer wear Dodger blue.
