The Thursday Thinker: Rich Pitchers

Can you name the 22 pitchers with active $50 million contracts?


We're about a week removed from the first rumor that the Brewers had signed Matt Garza to a four year, $52 million contract. The actual deal turned out to be $50 million, still the largest free agent contract in franchise history.

Across baseball, however, $50 million deals for pitchers are a relatively common occurrence. As of this week there are 22 pitchers with active contracts worth $50 million or more. How many can you name in five minutes?
