Dodgers News: Former Rookie of the Year Sentenced to 8 Years in Prison

It’s a sad day for Dodgers fans. Former Rookie of the Year Raul Mondesi, who played with the team from 1993 to 1999, was just sentenced to 8 years in prison. Mondesi was being investigated for corruption charges dating back to 2017 in the Dominican Republic.

Mondesi was also fined roughly $3 million to go along with his prison sentence. He had spent time as the mayor of his hometown of San Cristobal in the DR, as he had become heavily involved in politics since he retired from Major League Baseball.

Mondesi spent 14 years in the Majors and played for seven different teams. He spent the first 7 years of his career in Los Angeles, accumulating 1004 hits and crushing 163 home runs en route to a Rookie of the Year award, two gold gloves, and one All-Star appearance.

The Dodgers have not issued any comments on Mondesi, and we do not expect any.
