Best MLB Latino Contracts of All Time

Honorable Mentions

While Rodriguez’s contract guarantees less money than the names we will mention now, the young Dominican has the opportunity to extend it to an exorbitant figure. That’s why we didn’t want to leave out these other Latinos who surpassed the $200 million dollar mark.

  • Robinson Canó – Seattle Mariners (10 seasons – $240,000,000 million)
  • Albert Pujols – Anaheim Angels (10 seasons – $240,000,000 million)
  • Miguel Cabrera – Detroit Tigers (8 seasons – $248,000,000 million dollars)

5.- Julio Rodríguez – Seattle Mariners

Best Latino contracts in MLB

The Mariners’ young superstar shocked the Major League Baseball market on Friday, August 26, after the organization announced a multi-million dollar contract extension that guarantees him $210,000,000 million for the next 12 seasons.

However, it’s not all there, as between MVP bonuses and contract options for both the outfielder and the team, this could reach over $400,000,000 million dollars. Not bad for a 21-year-old.

4.- Alex Rodríguez – New York Yankees

Best Latino contracts in MLB

Alex Rodríguez ranks fourth on our list of the best Latino contracts in MLB with two different teams. The first of these was agreed in 2001, with the Texas Rangers, for 10 seasons and $252,000,000 million dollars.

Then, in 2008, after being traded to the New York Yankees, he signed for another 10 seasons and $275,000,000 million, being, by that time, the highest paid player in all baseball.

3.- Manny Machado – San Diego Padres

Best Latino contracts in MLB

In the 2019 season, Manny Machado signed with the San Diego Padres the largest contract in the organization’s history and the largest for a free agent at the time. After seven elite seasons with the Orioles and a brief internship with the Dodgers, the Dominican was able to sign a 10-year, $300,000,000 million dollar contract with the Californians.

2.- Fernando Tatis Jr. – San Diego Padres

Best Latino contracts in MLB

With just two seasons in the Major Leagues, the San Diego Padres didn’t want to miss the opportunity to show Fernando Tatis Jr. their claims that he would be the franchise’s longtime player, and prior to the 2021 campaign they signed him for 14 seasons and $340,000,000 million.

Not an insignificant figure for a 22-year-old who will return to free agency when he is 36 years old.

1.- Francisco Lindor – New York Mets

Best Latino contracts in MLB

When the New York Mets had the opportunity to acquire Francisco Lindor’s services via trade from Cleveland in January 2021, the “Big Apple” organization did not hesitate to offer a million-dollar contract to the Puerto Rican shortstop to keep him in their ranks for a long time.

The 27-year-old Lindor sealed a 10-season, $341,000,000 million dollar deal, averaging $34.1 million per season.
