Brewers to Extend Yelich


Recommended Posts


Not sure if this is in addition to the extra two years or not.

 

Passan is saying it's 9 years of control, which would mean 7 beyond the current deal.

 

I wonder if they've worked out 7 new years and rewritten the next two to give him more money in those years and less later.

Joel Sherman of the New York Post tweets that the deal, in its totality, would check in at around $215MM over nine years with a mutual option for a 10th season. With Yelich already guaranteed $27.75MM through 2021, that’d put the new deal at around seven years and $187.25MM in new money, depending on the final numbers. The preexisting option year will be “torn up” and replaced by the new extension, tweets MLB Network’s Jon Heyman.

Yikes! The Brewers have one of the, if not THE, bottom-ranked systems in baseball. I wonder how Yelly is going to feel in 3 years when that team is looking up at 3 or more NL Central teams in the standings...

 

The Brewers can trade him to the Marlins :p

 

For say.....Brinson?

He better demand a trade because when he was here he acted like he was above being on a losing team anymore.

Yelich's deal is official, here's the breakdown:

 

The 28-year-old Yelich was already under club control for $12.5MM in 2020 and $14MM in 2021 — plus a $15MM club option ($1.25MM buyout) for the 2022 season. Those salaries came under the terms of Yelich’s previous seven-year, $49.57MM deal, though; the newly proposed arrangement would obviously catapult him into the game’s elite in terms of annual rate of compensation.

 

Under the terms of the new contract, those 2020-21 salaries will remain in place, while Yelich will reportedly be guaranteed $26MM annually from 2022-28. The option is said to be valued at $20MM with a $6.5MM buyout. He also receives a full no-trade clause. The contract doesn’t have any opt-outs. In all, he’ll be paid a hefty $215MM over the next nine seasons thanks to today’s extension.
