Ace Corbin Burns (29, Milwaukee Brewers), who represents the National League, lost in an annual salary adjustment with the club.
MLB.com said on the 16th (Korean time), “Burns lost in the Salary Adjustment Committee with Milwaukee. Burns will receive an annual salary of 10.1 million dollars (12.8 billion won) this year.”
In the major leagues, if a player who has played full-time for more than three years cannot agree on an annual salary with the club, the annual salary is adjusted through the Salary Adjustment Committee. Burns, who was eligible for adjustment from the 2022 season salary, succeeded in reaching an agreement with the club for $6.5 million (about 8.33 billion won) that year, but before this season, he wanted an annual salary of $10.75 million (about 13.79 billion won) and $10.1 million. I could not narrow down my opinion with the club that presented the . The difference between the two sides was only 740,000 dollars (950 million won). Eventually, Burns and the club went to the Salary Adjustment Committee, and the club won. 메이저사이트
For Burns, there’s a reason to call the high amount. Burns, who made his debut in the Major League (MLB) in 2018, began to blossom his ace-class skills with a 4-1 loss and an average ERA of 2.11 in 12 games (9 starts) in 2020, a shortened season. Receiving sixth place in the Cy Young Award voting, he fully awakened the following year and succeeded in winning the Cy Young Award for the first time in his career with 11 wins, 5 losses and an average ERA of 2.43. Last year, he also recorded 12 wins and 8 losses with an ERA of 2.94, which was not as good as a year ago, but he ranked first in the league with 243 strikeouts.
Burns can qualify as a free agent (FA) after the 2024 season. The expectation that he will become the biggest pitcher is already following him. For Milwaukee, which is not a big market, it is best to tie it up with a cheap extension contract, but it is highly likely to go to the market as it is the biggest fish. In some cases, a trade scenario can be expected during this season or next season.
