30 (tie). Chris Davis – Baltimore Orioles, Major League Baseball:
Davis signed a seven-year, $161,000,000 contract with the Baltimore Orioles in early 2016 after hitting 47 home runs and 117 runs batted in (RBI) in 2015. The massive signing averaged $23,000,000 a year and $141,975.31 a game.
He proceeded to hit .221 the first year of the deal with a league-leading 219 strikeouts. Davis followed that up with a .215 batting average and 195 strikeouts the following season.
But he hit some new lows in 2018 with a. 168 batting average, .243 on base percentage, and .296 slugging percentage. All of those figures were the lowest in the league. This was not a good deal, but somehow he still plays for Baltimore.
