Tampa Bay Rays retain Wander Franco with juicy and extensive contract

Wwalk Frank will have the salary of thousands of people together in their entire lives to their 20 years old, after Tampa Bay retained him with a millionaire contract after the results of the season that has just ended.

The Dominican shortstop played 70 games during the campaign with the Rays, so that it is November 23, 2021 he got at least $ 185 million in a 12-year long contract. It should be noted that the deal will have a maximum of $ 223 dollars according to reports from ESPN.

Franco had a .288 record plus seven homers and 39 RBIs in the regular season, although his best moment was in the playoffs due to hitting .368, a pair of home runs and four runs RBIs for a team that was about to play the Fall Classic.

The Tampa Bay Rays decided to speed up their relationship with the player despite the fact that until 2027 he would be a free agent, with an arbitration election in 2024.

The contract puts it above Ronald Acuña who at age 21 agreed to an eight-year employment relationship in 2019 with the Atlanta Braves for a sum of $ 100 million. So now Wander Franco will have the privilege of presuming that he has the mark of a contract towards a baseball player with less than a year in the club.
