The Arizona Diamondbacks of the American Professional Baseball Major League (MLB) have signed a large-scale long-term contract with prospect Corbin Carroll (22).
American media such as MLB.com cited sources on the 12th (Korean time) and reported that the Arizona club extended the contract with Carroll for an eight-year contract for a total of $110 million (approximately 145.5 billion won).
Carroll will receive a guaranteed salary through 2030, after which he can play for another year for $24 million, depending on whether the club option is exercised.
Arizona is a cheap club that ranked 25th out of 30 clubs ($53.17 million) in last year’s 26-man roster salary ranking.먹튀검증
The reason Arizona, which has been stingy in player investment lately, opened up its wallet because it judged the growth potential of outfielder Carroll to be high.
Joining Arizona with the 16th overall pick in the first round of the 2019 rookie draft, he showed explosive growth.
Last year he made his big league debut after posting a .313 batting average in minor league Double-A and a .287 in Triple-A.
Carroll also stood out in the MLB. In the 32 games he played in, he posted a batting average of 0.260, 4 homers, and 14 RBIs, and an OPS (slugging percentage + on-base percentage) of 0.830.
MLB.com said, “This contract is the largest among players who have not played in a professional league outside the United States and who have registered for less than 100 days in the MLB.”
