The Philadelphia Phillies of the Major League Baseball (MLB) signed a large contract extension with ace Jack Wheeler (33) ahead of the opening of the season.

Sports media ESPN reported on the 5th (Korean time) that Philadelphia agreed to a three-year contract extension with Wheeler worth $126 million (about 127.9 billion won) from 2025 to 2027.

Wheeler’s annual salary, averaging $42 million, is the highest ever for an extension contract.

Including free agent (FA) contracts rather than extension contracts, he ranks third in history as a pitcher, following Max Scherzer and Justin Verlander ($43.33 million).

Also, among all major league fielders, he ranks fourth after Shohei Ohtani, Scherzer, and Verlander, who signed a 10-year contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers for $700 million last winter.

Wheeler, who debuted with the New York Mets in 2013, signed a five-year contract with Philadelphia for $118 million after the 2019 season.

Wheeler, who pitched in 101 games for Philadelphia over four seasons until last year and served as an ace with a record of 43 wins, 25 losses, and an average ERA of 3.06, pitched in 11 postseason games and performed particularly well with 4 wins, 3 losses, and an average ERA of 2.42.

Philadelphia, which succeeded in renewing a 7-year contract with pitcher Aaron Nola, who qualified as a free agent after last season, for $172 million (approximately 223 billion won), also signed an extension with Wheeler, maintaining a solid ‘one-two punch’ for the time being. done. 일본야동
