MLB News: Shohei Ohtani and Juan Soto on track for first $500 million contracts?

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.

I joined ‘Al Bat’ in September 2020, beginning a new work stage in which I always seek to give my best version, in addition to leaving a significant mark on the passage of women in an industry that is mainly managed by men. Bachelor of Communication Sciences and Techniques from the Inter-American University for Development (UNID), I am a specialist in sports journalism, writing and editing texts, I have three years of experience covering sports, especially baseball in the Mexican Baseball League (LMB). ), Mexican Pacific League (LMP) and MLB. I was an intern at the LMB Leones de Yucatán Baseball Club, with whom I attended the 2019 Serie del Rey. I have done work for social networks such as coverage of the 2019-2020 edition of the LMP Final for ‘Con Las Bases Llenas’. I am constantly updated on social networks, SEO, Google positioning, writing, digital journalism, as well as the place of women in the sports industry. Originally from Mérida, Yucatán, my first approach to baseball was at a Leones de Yucatán game, in the ‘Kukulcán Álamo’ Park, in 2015; and that changed my life completely. The ‘Melenudos’ are the team I love and the greatest passion I have in this sport. Although I dedicate myself to baseball most of the time, my sport, at the beginning, was (and still is) soccer. Real Madrid and Bayern Munich won my heart and fans from ‘minute one’ and I am fortunate to have already seen them play live. Clearly, I am a fan of Cristiano Ronaldo and Manuel Neuer.
