The ransom of a pitcher with a contract payment of $10,000 has risen 6,400 times in 8 years. Pitcher Christian Javier (26), who joined the Houston Astros with a contract of $10,000, has signed a five-year, $64 million contract extension.
Houston announced a five-year, $64 million contract extension with Javier on the 12th (Korean time). It is a five-year contract, including a three-year salary adjustment period, with a down payment of $2 million, $3 million in 2023, $7 million in 2024, $10 million in 2025, and $21 million between 2026 and 2027.
It is also the first contract for Houston’s new general manager, Dana Brown. “We are delighted to sign a long-term contract with Javier, a key pitcher in our starting rotation,” Brown said. He is a player who fits perfectly into our vision for both current and successful success.” 온라인카지노
Javier, a right-handed pitcher from the Dominican Republic, came to Houston in March 2015 on an international amateur contract. He was a player with a contract of only $10,000, but he continued to grow in the Houston training system and stepped on the major league stage in 2020.
In the first year, he played an active role in 12 games (10 starts) with an average ERA of 3.48 and 5 wins and 2 losses. He started last year as a relief, but established himself as a starter from the end of April. He played 148⅔ innings in 30 games (25 starts), going 11-9 with an earned run average of 2.54 and 194 strikeouts.
He boasted an average of 93.8 miles (151 km) four-seam fastball at a rate of 59.9% and a hit rate of 10 percent (.183). Even though his repertoire is close to four-seam and slider two-pitch, his deception is good, so hitters can’t get the timing right easily.
Last year, Houston had two team no-hitter games, and Javier was the starter in both games. On June 26, against the New York Yankees, he struck out 13 with 1 walk in 7 innings, and on November 3, he struck out 9 with 2 walks in 6 innings against the Philadelphia Phillies in Game 4 of the World Series. First team no-hitter game in major league postseason. Houston defeated Philadelphia 4-2, and Javier also got his first championship ring.
Javier, who won 3 wins in his last 4 games last year, with 23 innings, 6 hits, 6 walks, 29 strikeouts and no runs, won 2 wins in 3 games (2 starts) in the postseason, 16 with 2 hits (1 home run) and 5 walks in 12⅔ innings. With one strikeout and an average ERA of 0.71, momentum increased. Based on starting pitches, he showed explosive growth with no runs in 34⅓ innings in the last six games last year.
Javier was the first to qualify for a salary adjustment application this year. The player asked for 3 million dollars, and the club offered 3.5 million dollars, but the agreement was reached with a 5-year extension without adjustment. He delayed his first free agent acquisition period by two more years, skipping the salary adjustment period of the next three years, including this year. It is evaluated as a club-friendly contract with an annual average of $12.8 million, but it is a life changer for Javier, who came for only $10,000 eight years ago.
