47. Cole Hamels – Philadelphia Phillies, Major League Baseball:
Hamels signed a six-year, $144,000,000 extension in July 2012. The deal averaged a year $24,000,000 and $148,148.15 per game.
The deal did not last long. Hamels threw his way to an 8–14 record with a 3.60 ERA in 220 innings and 202 strikeouts in 2013, not the stuff of a $24 million man. He was traded to the Texas Rangers on July 31, 2015. He was then traded to the Chicago Cubs in 2018, where he currently plays.
