‘Suspicion to security footage’: $200 million looms for Snell

The price tag for Cy Young Award winner Blake Snell, 31, as he heads into free agency is set to be higher than expected. A $200 million price tag is in sight.

The Philadelphia Phillies officially announced the signing of free agent-eligible right-handed starter Aaron Nola, 30, to a seven-year contract on Tuesday. Seven years, $172 million.

Nola reportedly took a ransom discount to remain in Philadelphia. The competition for the remaining top-tier starting pitchers will only get more intense.

The biggest name in free agency is Yoshinobu Yamamoto, 25, who has dominated Japanese professional baseball. Snell, who also won the Cy Young Award, is rated second. Third place is a surprise.

Nola, rated as the third-best pitcher in the game, opted to remain in Philadelphia, ending his contract early, just days after free agency opened.

This significantly reduced the options for teams looking to bolster their starting rotation. Only Yamamoto, Snell, Sonny Gray, and Jordan Montgomery remain in the top five.

Of these, Snell is the highest-ranked pitcher with major league experience, especially after winning the Cy Young Award ahead of his free agency.

In 32 games and 180 innings pitched this season, Snell went 14-9 with a 2.25 ERA. That’s the best ERA in the majors, not just the National League. 토토사이트

At one point, not many people expected Snell to win the Cy Young Award because of his jumper. But Snell’s stellar late-season pitching helped him win the Cy Young Award in both leagues.

At the midway point of the season, few expected Snell to receive a $200 million contract. But now, a $200 million contract is within his grasp.
