Yankees’ Superstar Juan Soto seeking huge contract

The MLB’s next historic contract

Juan Soto will be MLB’s next superstar to land a historic contract after this season. Juan and his agent Scott Boras are “after the records” according to The Athletic’s Brittany Ghiroli. With a deal STARTING at $500M. There is a really good chance this deal has a higher AAV than Shohei’s contract.

The Yankees acquired Juan Soto and Trent Grisham from the Padres after trading RHP Michael King, RHP Jhony Brito, RHP Randy Vasquez, Drew Thorpe, and catcher Kyle Higashioka.

Since debuting in 2018, Soto has slashed .284/.421/.524 with 160 home runs and 483 RBIs in 779 games, making three All-Star teams and winning four Silver Sluggers. In those six years, Soto has drawn 640 walks and struck out 577 times which is incredibly rare for a baseball player to have more walks than strikeouts.

Soto and the Yankees are off to a hot start in 2024 winning 9 of their first 11 games. In those 11 games, Soto has slashed .357/.462/.548 with a 1.009 OPS along with 2 HRs, 10 RBIs, and 9 BBs.

Will the Yankees be willing to give Juan Soto a massive contract like Shohei Ohtani’s after giving Aaron Judge a 9-year $360M contract in 2022?
