Shohei Ohtani’s raise of 3.54 billion yen is the highest ever.

Among players who have the right to mediate their annual salary, this is the highest increase, surpassing DeGrom’s 1.39 billion yen.

Shohei Ohtani has agreed to a one-year, $30 million annual contract with the Angels through 2023. This is an increase from $24.5 million in annual salary this season, surpassing Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom’s $9.6 million (about 1.39 billion yen) (about 1.39 billion yen), the highest increase ever for a player with the right to mediate.

Otani was in the final year of his two-year contract. This season’s annual salary is $5.5 million (about 796 million yen), and next season’s $30 million is up about 445%. John Heyman, US media columnist “New York Post” and reporter from MLB Network, said, “Ohtani’s annual salary increase in mediation was $24.5 million, breaking Jacob deGrom’s annual salary increase of $9.6 million. Of course, In fact, he is better than anyone else.”

DeGrom signed a one-year deal with the Mets after the 2018 season, increasing his salary from $7.4 million to $17 million. DeGrom’s contract is the longest ever for an arbitration-eligible player, and Ohtani is well ahead of that record.
