Some of those contracts handed out, though, broke records and made players among the highest paid in baseball.
For example, former Los Angeles Dodgers ace Zack Greinke took his talents to the Arizona Diamondbacks with a six-year, $205.5 million deal. Incredibly enough, that contract ranks as just the 12th-richest in MLB history. It did set the record for highest average annual value, though, as Greinke will rake in more than $34 million per season until 2021.
So if that incredible contract didn’t make the list, how much are these ballplayers being paid? Check out the link below to find out.
