The new money will be paid out at an annual salary of $27.1mil for 5-year
And the amazing part of this who deal is he will still be only 33-years old when it runs out.
It will be interesting to see how this club operates in the future. Giving a $175 million dollar contract to one pitcher on a dead last team in a small market pretty much takes this guy off the trade market forever. No one is going to want any part of Hernandez, no matter how great a pitcher his is or was. This contract didn’t raise the bar. It is the bar.
