More than double Sugano’s annual salary to 15 million dollars.
Sugano, who is entering the Major League through the posting system, is expected to receive more than twice as much as last year.
Sugano earned 650 million yen (approximately 6.8 billion won) in annual salary last year. He was the king of the annual salary of Japanese professional baseball league in Japan 파워볼사이트
When he said he was going to play for the Major League for the first time, he was expected to receive an annual salary of 10 million dollars.
However, the amount seems to have increased due to fierce competition.
SportsNet Canadian journalist Nicholson Smith said, “Toronto acquired Yamaguchi last year and didn’t get very good results. He had a lot of walks and an average of eight earned runs. “The team would have wanted to gain confidence in whether it would be able to meet the contract, which is expected to cost 10 million dollars to 15 million dollars a year from Sugano.”
The article raised doubts about how much Sugano would perform, but what was more noticeable was the expected ransom. Toronto seems to have withdrawn from the recruitment due to the burden of the ransom.
This is because it was predicted that Sugano’s annual salary could soar to $15 million.
Earlier, U.S. media outlets said, “We have proposed a four-year contract that includes an opt-out to Yomiuri Sugano. He also raised his ransom significantly. However, Major League teams offered better conditions.
No matter how rich the team is, it is unlikely to be responsible for the $15 million annual ransom. This seems to be the reason why Sugano has no choice but to pay attention to the Major League.
Toronto, San Francisco, and Boston are reportedly interested in Hyukjae Sugano.
Which team will be Sugano’s final choice? There is not much time left now. Regardless of which team it is, it seems that they are booked for a huge salary.
Sugano made his debut as a Japanese professional baseball player with the Yomiuri Giants in 2013 and won the Sawamura Award, a Japanese Cy Young Award, in 2017 and 2018. He is the Japanese ace who recorded 101 wins and 49 losses in 1,360 innings in 196 games and 2.32 ERA in eight years. He has 14 wins, 2 losses, and a 1.97 ERA this season.
