The official contract period for Chris Davis (36), the home run king who retired last year, ends this year. However, he receives a deferred salary from next year. It is a whopping 42 million dollars (approximately 55.1 billion won) over the next 15 years. It is a thick ‘pension’.
Davis made his major league debut in 2008 with the Texas Rangers. In his first year, he hit 17 home runs in 80 games, showing off his big shot potential. The following year, he hit 21 home runs in 113 games, with a low batting average being a downside. In 2010, he hit 100th in 45 games with 1 home run and threatening behavior. During 2011 he was traded to the Baltimore Orioles.
Baltimore gave Davis a chance. He appeared in 139 games in the 2012 season, with 33 home runs and 85 RBI, and a batting average of 2.7. In the 2013 season, he was the league’s home run and RBI leader with 53 homers and 138 RBIs, and in the 2015 season, he ranked third in the league’s home run and RBI record with 47 homers and 117 RBI.
Baltimore signed a seven-year, $161 million 메이저놀이터 (approximately 211.2 billion won) free agent contract with Davis, who hit 126 home runs in three seasons, ahead of the 2016 season. $23 million annual salary.
However, it went downhill after signing the jackpot contract. In the 2016 season, he hit 38 home runs and 84 RBIs, but his batting average was 2.21. He further dropped to 2.5 with 26 home runs and 61 home runs in the 2017 season. He became increasingly intimidated.
He finished the 2018 season with a . He had just 16 home runs and 49 RBIs in 128 games.
In the 2019 season, he also set a disgraced record in major league history. He became the main character of the issue with no hits in 54 at-bats in 62 at-bats. He finished the season with a batting average of 1.7 with 12 home runs and 36 RBIs in 105 games.
In the 2020 season, which was shortened due to Corona 19, he suffered from a knee injury and played in only 16 games, batting average 10.5 and 0 home runs.
In the 2021 season, he was put on the injured list after entering only two at-bats in an exhibition game, and after undergoing hip surgery in May, he was out for the season without playing a single game. Although contracted through the 2022 season, Davis eventually announced his retirement in August 2021.
He had enough of the worst scam cases, and he became an increasingly vicious contract in Baltimore. He didn’t hit a single home run in the final three years of his contract, but his $23 million annual contract was preserved.
However, when Baltimore signed a 7-year, $161 million contract with Davis, they signed a contract to dip a portion of their annual salary. The deferred payment was a condition to pay Davis from 2023 to 2037, when the contract expired.
Davis will receive $3.5 million annually from 2023 to 2032 and $1.4 million annually from 2033 to 2037. 42 million dollars.
Although Davis was a “run-and-run” late in his contract, he also has a friendly image that offsets the accusations of “running out” by making many donations to the Baltimore community. When he announced his retirement, Davis promised that he would continue to work with the University of Maryland Children’s Hospital, which has been a consistent charity.
