Mattingly has a 260-225 record in his first three seasons with the Dodgers, who reached the NL championship series, which automatically triggered an extension of his contract that was set to expire at the end of last season.

Mattingly was runner-up for NL manager of the year last season.

General manager Ned Colletti says Mattingly has done "a great job" with the team and his new deal is "well-deserved."

After the Dodgers were eliminated by St. Louis in the playoffs, Mattingly said the organization put him in a difficult position with his players by not exercising a team option going into the final year of his three-year deal.
