Biggest deal in baseball history: Giancarlo Stanton close to 13-year, $325 million contract with Marlins

Last night it was believed to be 10 years and $300 million. This morning it was said to be 12 years and $320 million. And now both Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com and Jon Heyman of CBSSports.comreport that Giancarlo Stanton and the Marlins are close to signing a 13-year, $325 million contract.

Stanton’s new deal would break the previous record for the largest contract in MLB history, which isMiguel Cabrera and the Tigers at $292 million for 10 years.

Stanton still has two seasons of team control remaining via arbitration, so assuming this 13-year contract covers those two seasons and 11 seasons of free agency he’d be locked up through age 37 in 2027.

Stanton, who turned 25 years old earlier this month, finished runner-up in the NL MVP voting after hitting .288 with 37 homers and a .950 OPS in 142 games for the Marlins this season. He’s a career .271 hitter with a .903 OPS in 634 games, but the Marlins failed to finish with a winning record in any of his first five seasons and have not made the playoffs since 2003.



I've never even heard of this guy.

How long after locking him in do the Marlins trade him to the Yankees when his salary escalators kick in? I say three years.

He use to be known as Mike Stanton. Most people can't even name a Marlin.

Two years. If I was Stanton I would demand it be written in the contract that he's traded within 3 yrs so he can get away from the Marlins.

I would just play out my 2 years, get the fuck out of Miami and then have the Red Sox pay me 40 million a year.

That's a hell of a risk for a guy whose last AB was getting a ball to the face. The slightest hint of the yips and that contract is going to look worse than A-Rod's.

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Giancarlo Stanton will make just $6.5 million in the first year of his record $325 million, 13-year contract with the Miami Marlins.

The deal with the All-Star outfielder, the richest agreed to by a North American team, is to be formally announced at a news conference Wednesday. The agreement includes a $25 million club option for 2028 with a $10 million buyout.

Stanton will earn $107 million over the first six seasons of the deal, according to contract information obtained by The Associated Press. He then can opt out within four days of the end of the 2020 World Series, just around the time of his 31st birthday, and become a free agent.

After his initial salary, Stanton's pay rises to $9 million in 2016, $14.5 million in 2017 and $25 million in 2018. He gets $26 million in each of the next two seasons, then can decide whether to cut the deal short and go back on the market.

If he keeps the contract, he would get $29 million apiece in 2021 and '22, and $32 million in each of the following three seasons. His salary drops to $29 million in 2026 and $25 million in 2027.

Stanton receives a full no-trade clause — a provision the Marlins have refused to agree to in past deals. Stanton would earn $50,000 bonuses for making the All-Star team, winning a Gold Glove and winning a Silver Slugger. He also would get $100,000 if he's voted league MVP, $250,000 for league championship series MVP and $500,000 for World Series MVP.

He also gets the right to purchase eight season tickets annually and a luxury suite for five games per season.

Stanton's agreement tops the $292 million, 10-year contract Miguel Cabrera agreed to with the Detroit Tigers in March.

Stanton gets the first 13-year guaranteed deal in baseball history, topping an April 2012 agreement between Cincinnati and Joey Votto that guaranteed the first baseman $251.5 million over 12 years.
