A contract that exceeds $50 million even before its big league debut? Shurio is second in the list

Milwaukee Brewers top prospect Jackson Scherzer is on track to sign a record-breaking contract extension before he even makes his Major League Baseball (MLB) debut. The six-year, $50 million deal could top $64.5 million, according to local reports.

According to The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal, “Shurio and Milwaukee are in talks to extend his contract. The total amount would be a record.” Milwaukee team president Matt Arnold declined to comment further, but it’s well known locally that he holds Shurio in high regard.레모나토토 주소

The Venezuelan native, who was born in March 2004, will try to make Milwaukee prospect history.

“No player in Milwaukee’s history has ever been signed to a long-term contract before making his big league debut,” according to MLB.com.

To date, only five players across 30 MLB franchises have signed big-money contracts before their big league debut, starting with Houston Astros first baseman John Singleton’s five-year, $10 million deal in 2014 and ending with outfielder Lewis Roberts’ six-year, $50 million deal with the Chicago White Sox in 2020.

Signed by Milwaukee in 2021 to a minor league deal worth $1.9 million per year, Shurio has risen to the level of a top prospect. He was ranked No. 2 in MLB.com’s final 2023 prospect rankings. For the second straight year, he was named Milwaukee’s Minor League Player of the Year. He is a five-tool player with an OPS of .837 in three minor league seasons. He hit a career-high 22 home runs this season between Triple-A and Double-A.
