Buster Posey Signs on with Giants for 9 Years and $167m


The San Francisco Giants have finalized an agreement with NL MVP and batting champion Buster Posey. The deal seals his position on the team for nine years and gives him a whopping $167 million contract.

The details of the contract were made public by the team on Friday. It also includes a club option for 2022 that could increase Posey's earnings to $186 million over the course of ten years. There's also a special clause in the contract that prohibits him from being traded.

Posey's deal has made history for the team as it is currently the longest for a catcher and the largest in the history exceeding Matt Cain's $127.5m, six-year contract.

Posey was set to receive $8 million this year but this has changed slightly. Instead he will receive a $7 million signing bonus, with $5 million headed his way on October 15th and the remainder payable on January 15th. His paycheck for this year has also been decreased to $3 million.

Not a bad paycheck for playing a game that you love and you're good at!
