Predictions Shohei Ohtani’s contract could top $500M

Two-way megastar baseball player Shohei Ohtani could sign a contract in excess of $500 million next season, speculate many baseball insiders, reports the International Business Times.

If that happens, it would make him the highest-paid player in baseball history.

Four different sports agents who spoke to the New York Post backed up the speculation.

“I think he goes to $500M or so, probably 12 years,” said one.

“$500M for 13/14 [years]— $250M per position,” said another.

“11 times 50 = $550M. Sounds crazy but he has the ability to consistently be a 9/10 WAR player.”

“It sure seems like something that starts with a 5 in front of it,” said a fourth.

The predictions seem to be in the realm of possibility given what other players have signed for.

Aaron Judge just signed for $360 million to stay with the Yankees.

Four years ago, Mike Trout signed a 12 year deal worth $426 million.
