As the market develops and the value of currency changes, the major leagues are now in a situation where they hear of contracts worth more than $ 300 million. However, it does not change the fact that they are a select few among many players.
Of the many superstars in the major leagues, only 53 are earning more than $20 million this year. The financial situation of all 30 clubs is different, so it is difficult to pinpoint them, but if you divide them by club, there are less than two players. One of them is Ryu Hyun-jin (36‧ Toronto). Currently, he is away from the ground for a while due to an injury, but this is a part where you can feel the status that Ryu Hyun-jin has accumulated in the major leagues so far.토토사이트
Ryu Hyun-jin, who recovered perfectly from a shoulder injury, won the 2019 National League ERA title and ranked second in the Cy Young Award voting, signed a four-year, $80 million contract with Toronto ahead of the 2020 season. It was on condition that he receive $20 million annually. He also gets $20 million this year, which is tied for 46th in the major league year-to-date salary rankings.
There are a total of eight players, including Ryu Hyun-jin, who receive an annual salary of 20 million dollars. Clayton Kershaw (LA Dodgers), a former teammate and once called the best pitcher on the planet, also receives 20 million dollars this year, the same as Ryu Hyun-jin. Charlie Morton (Atlanta), Joe Musglove (San Diego), Trevor Story (Boston), and Kyle Schwaber (Philadelphia) also have the same annual salary as Ryu Hyun-jin this year.
The highest-paid player is the New York Mets’ “preliminary Hall of Fame” duo. Max Scherzer and Justin Verlander are tied for first place with about $43.33 million each. The industry’s interpretation is that Scherzer agreed to this contract ahead of 2022, and that Verlander was equally matched so that his pride would not be hurt.
After that, Aaron Judge (New York Yankees), who won last year’s MVP award, receives 40 million dollars. Scherzer, Verlander, and Judge are just three players earning more than $40 million a year.
The 4th and 5th places are the Angels duo. Anthony Rendon, who has not been able to escape from the ‘eating and running controversy’, has an annual salary of about 38.57 million dollars this year. It is more than teammate Mike Trout (approximately $37.11 million), the man with the largest contract in major league history (12 years, $426 million). It is also a passage that can well understand fans’ disappointment with Rendon.
Gerrit Cole (New York Yankees, $36 million), Corey Seager (Texas, $35.5 million), Carlos Correa (Minnesota, $33.33 million), Nolan Arenado (St. Louis, $32.82 million), Stephen Strasburg (Washington, $32.5 million) 10,000 dollars) is the TOP 10. There are a total of 16 players earning more than $30 million a year.
The player on the $30 million mark is Shohei Ohtani (LA Angels). He is also the only player among 16 players earning more than $30 million who did not qualify as a free agent. Ohtani entered the all-time $30 million club this year, the final year of his salary adjustment. At the end of this season, he is expected to obtain FA qualification, and it is certain that he will be ranked No. 1 on the leaderboard around this time next year. It is being noted that he may be able to open the first $50 million annual salary club in history.
