35 (tie). Masahiro Tanaka – New York Yankees, Major League Baseball:
Japanese hurler Tanaka signed a seven-year, $155,000,000 contract with the Yankees in 2014 after his team Rakuten posted him to MLB and made a cool$20 million fee. His deal averaged $22,141,857 a year and $136,684.30 a game.
He opted not to utilize the opt-out clause for the last three years of his contract in late 2017. Tanaka is still throwing heat for the Yankees. This was a solid deal.
