Baseball Contracts

Hot Stove League Contracts

Week of March 23

Re-Signed with Club
Brian Dozier signs 4 year $20,000,000 contract extension with Twins.
SPRO Analysis - Minnesota pays market value for Dozier. One year too long for us, but a good deal none the less. SPRO 3 years $13,036,000 actually makes it a bit of a bargain in the first three as he'll be making $11m in that time frame.

Week of March 16

Re-Signed with Club
Adam Eaton signs 5 year $23,500,000 contract with $9.5m/$10.5m option for 6th and 7th year and $1.5m buyout with White Sox.
SPRO Analysis - Chicago White Sox overpays for Eaton. It's hard to say these types are overpays, because we just don't know. Too far out after one good year to know. We're not in favor of these deals, but they may work out okay. For us, SPRO 2 years $3,256,000. For the first two years of the actual deal, it's right on the money.

Christian Yelich signs 7 year $49,570,000 contract with $15,000,000 option for 8th year and $2m buyout with Marlins.
SPRO Analysis - Miami overpays for Yelich. It's just too early for this for us. Might end up being good, but we'd wait until after this year to see whether his one good year turns into more. Be interesting to see what the year to year details are. For right now, SPRO 3 years $4,991,000.
