As the years go by, the market for free agency of the Major League Baseball (MLB) has intensified and large contracts they have closed in on it. However, it is reported that much larger negotiations are on the way and there are two players who would make history for the amount they would agree on. Is about Shohei Ohtani and Juan Soto, who could sign for $500 million.
The journalist Jeff Passan had an appearance on the show ‘The Pat McAfee’ and in it he announced that Shohei Ohtani and Juan Soto are predicted to be the first players in Major League history to obtain contracts of $500 million dollars.
These deals could appear on the MLB market in the next couple of years, as Ohtani is signed by the Angels through 2023; while Soto is insured with the Padres until 2024.
Passan’s hint is particularly notable in the wake of the Dominican Republic native deciding to turn down the Washington Nationals’ $440 million, 15-year offer.
This 2022 who has the largest contract at the moment is Aaron Judge, since he signed with the New York Yankees for nine seasons and an economic amount of $360 million dollars.
