10. Joe Mauer ($23 million)
In short, Mauer just doesn’t hit with enough power to justify his mega-deal. In eight full seasons in the big leagues, the 29-year-old has posted a slugging percentage above .470 exactly twice. While catching does absolutely make him more valuable, he’s been transitioning out of that role in recent seasons, seeing more time at first base and DH, which diminishes his value.
