With the MLB postseason in full swing, no pun intended, I figured it’d be best to take a look at some of the salaries of the guys who are paid to make batters swing and miss—the pitchers! Over the past 25 years or so, there has been an uptick in salaries for every single professional athlete in every sport, but because pitching is what wins championships in baseball, teams put an extra emphasis on overpaying to get the best they can. So who are the hurlers who earned the most money in their MLB career from just salary alone? Some of these might have been expected, while a few others may shock you.
