The days of Nolan Arenaledo as the face of the Rocky Mountains franchise will continue after the 2019 season. Arenao, who had to reach a free agency next winter, instead agreed to an eight-year extension of the $ 260 million contract. Wasserman's new contract has reportedly contained an opt-out clause after the third season, allowing him to become a free agent before his 31-year-old campaign.
The newly negotiated contract will replace the one-year contract for $ 26 million, for which Areando has already agreed and will create a new record annual salary for players in positions exceeding Miguel Cabrera the previous estimate of $ 31MM. In terms of the total average annual salary (AAV), Arenado's contract is for Zack Greinke for $ 34.4MM for the biggest in the history of the MLB. This is the fourth largest deal achieved only in terms of the total warranty, just after (13 years, $ 325MM), Manny Machado (10 years, $ 300MM) and Alex Rodriguez (10 years, $ 275MM).
Arenado, 28 in April, won a gold glove in all six of his Major League seasons so far, combining this hardware with Silver Sluggers in each of the last four seasons. He made four consecutive teams of all stars and finished in the top 5 of the National League in three seasons. For the last four years, Arenao led the National League in a series of three series and published a combined .297 / .358 / .573 line with 158 homer, 159 pairs and 19 trikes.
Detectors point to Arenareno's home. / path is split, suggesting that its value is inflated by Coors Field, and although it is certainly true that he favors this favorable environment, he has also reduced the steady 267 / .329 / .502 on the way four years (with many of these games coming in the Pittsh Parks in San Francisco, San Diego and Los Angeles). The park-neutral indicators, such as OPS + (129) and wRC + (127), believe that, even after adjusting the benefits of their home park, Aredeaux's bat was 27 to 29% better than the average striker 2015. By wRC + He is among the 35 best players in this four-year period and, when combined with his premier defense in the hot corner, he ranks in the top 10 in overall wins over substitution between the positioned players, Fangraphs.
has just denied Arenado's place among the legitimate superstars of the game, and he probably brings more value to the Rocky Mountains than any other organization, given its existing relationship with fans and the Denver community. He is nearly two years older than the current two free agent stars, Bryce Harper and Manny Machado, so it's no surprise to see Arenado for a slightly shorter deal than both his peers. But with regard to the annual pace, the new contract is now at the top of Machado's annual salary, and may well be higher than AAV, which Harper will eventually endorse.
Arenado is the second free agent for 2019-20 rather than testing an open market that is getting slower for the best talents. Aaron Hicks signed a seven-year deal with Yankees yesterday.) Had he hit the open market, it is likely that deep pocket teams such as the Dodgers and especially the Yankees would try. to land their services, but the alleged free agent on the market for the next year will instead take his payroll for the year early to stay with the only organization he once knew.
