Grading the Juan Soto trade and other key Yankees questions

Major League Baseball (MLB) New York Yankees outfielder Juan Soto (25), who is one year away from becoming a free agent (FA), and New York Mets Pete Alonso (29) signed a one-year contract to avoid salary adjustments.

MLB.com said on the 12th (local time), “Soto signed a one-year contract with the Yankees for $31 million (about 40.8 billion won), and Alonso signed a one-year contract with the Mets for $20.5 million (27 billion won),” and “Soto is eligible for salary adjustment.” “He received the highest treatment among players with the highest qualifications,” the report said.

The player who previously signed a contract with the largest amount of salary adjustment price was Shohei Ohtani (LA Dodgers, 29), who signed a one-year contract with the LA Angels for $30 million (approximately 39.4 billion won) last year.

Soto, who played for the San Diego Padres last season, appeared in 162 games and had a batting average of 0.275, 35 home runs, and 109 RBI.

San Diego, which did not have enough funds, traded Soto, who was about to qualify as a free agent, to the Yankees in this Stove League.

Alonso, who signed the second largest contract in this salary adjustment after Soto, recorded a batting average of 0.217, 46 home runs, and 118 RBI in 154 games last season. 19가이드03
