Thanks to Ohtani’s salary deferral?…Dodgers, right-hander Glasnow sign big five-year, 178 billion contract

Is it the effect of LA Dodgers pitcher Shohei Ohtani’s postponement of his annual salary? As soon as the LA Dodgers recruited right-handed starter Tyler Glasnow (30), it signed a big contract.

MLB.COM, the official website of Major League Baseball, reported on the 17th (Korean time) that the Dodgers signed an extension contract with Glasnow for $136.5 million (about 178 billion won) for five years.

The contract was guaranteed for four years until 2027, and in 2028, the last year, a salary of $30 million will be paid if the Dodgers invoke the option.

Glasnow had 30 wins, 27 losses, and an ERA of 3.89 during eight big league seasons. He is a pitcher who sprays fastballs at speeds of up to 160 kilometers per hour based on his tall height of 203 centimeters. Unless he gets injured frequently, he is a pitcher who can expect active first- and second-tier players. 랭크카지노

The Dodgers gave up pitcher Ryan Pepio and outfielder Johnny Deluca to the Tampa Bay Rays on the 15th and made a 2-2 trade to receive Glasnow and outfielder Manuel Margot.

The Dodgers needed to reinforce its starting pitchers in the offseason after suffering a setback in its starting lineup in this year’s postseason. Ohtani, who doubles as a pitcher and batter, can play as a batter next season after undergoing elbow surgery.

After completing the trade, the Dodgers immediately signed a large extension contract with Glasnow.

Due to frequent injuries, he has never started full-time, and gave a pitcher who will turn 31 next season an average of $27.3 million a year.

Although the value of a starter in the Major League has been soaring recently, such a contract was possible because of Ohtani’s contract, which he recruited earlier.

Ohtani signed the largest 10-year, 700 million-dollar contract in North American sports history with the Dodgers, drawing attention from around the world. However, it was revealed that 97% of the contract, or 680 million dollars, was decided to be shared over 10 years after the 10-year contract ended, which surprised the team again.

Ohtani is paid a salary that a rookie player of $2 million deserves every year for 10 years with the Dodgers.

Ohtani hoped that through an unprecedented level of payment grace, the team would reinforce its power without any financial burden while he was playing. And the Dodgers began to realize Ohtani’s wish immediately with an extension contract with Glasnow.

The Dodgers is also targeting another free agent pitcher Yoshinobu Yamamoto (aged 25, Orix). The contract amount for right-hander Yamamoto, which involves the New York Yankees and New York Mets along with the Dodgers, is expected to exceed 300 million U.S. dollars.

He is the first pitcher in Japanese professional baseball history to win five consecutive wins (2021, 2022), four consecutive wins for three consecutive years, and the Sawamura Award.
