‘The best contract for a player in the big leagues less than 100 days’ ARI, ML Prospect with 32G 8-year contract extension of 146.9 billion won

 The Arizona Diamondbacks signed a contract extension with prospect Corbin Carroll (23) for eight years.

On the 12th (Korean time), MLB.com, the official major league media outlet, said, “Arizona saw Carroll as a player to rebuild the team from the time it was nominated in the first round (16th pick) of the 2019 rookie draft. He has now signed a contract that can show that specialness,” he said, announcing the news of Carol’s contract extension.

MLB.com said, “I signed a contract with Carroll for 8 years and guaranteed amount of 111 million dollars (approximately 146.9 billion won). The 2031 club option is included, and when the option is executed, the contract size will increase to $134 million (approximately 177.3 billion won). It is a structured contract with annual salary increases until 2029 and 2031. The club has yet to officially announce the contract,” he explained.

Carroll made his major league debut last season and recorded a batting average of 2.6 (27 hits in 104 at-bats), 4 homers, 14 RBIs, and an OPS of .830 in 32 games. He hasn’t shown much yet, but his potential is being recognized. In the MLB.com prospect rankings, he was ranked second overall in the major leagues.메이저사이트

It’s true that Carroll is a promising player, but it’s not often that a player with little major league experience gets a big contract worth over $100 million. MLB.com said, “Carol’s contract is the largest contract among players with less than 100 days of service time in the major leagues and no experience in overseas leagues. The previous record was a $70 million (92.6 billion won) contract between Atlanta and Michael Harris II on August 17 last year,” he said, highlighting Carroll’s contract.

The deal allows Carroll to become a franchise star in Arizona. MLB.com said, “With this contract, Arizona can have two more free agency seasons in addition to Carroll’s salary adjustment period. Carroll can enter the free agency market at the earliest at the age of 31.”
