National star waves record contract

Stephen Strasburg agrees with the Washington Nationals on a new record treaty. This is to bring the pitcher 245 million dollars.

The Washington Nationals and Stephen Strasburg have agreed on a new record contract in the MLB.

According to US media reports, the starting pitcher will sign a new seven-year contract with the current World Series winner, which will earn him a total of 245 million dollars.

Both the total volume and the average annual salary would represent a new record for a pitcher in the MLB. So far, the record amount of $217 million David Price has earned for seven years at the Boston Red Sox is a record, in terms of average salary Zack Greinkes ($31.5 million) was ahead.

Strasbourg exits contract after World Series win

“We are very excited to welcome back Stephen Strasburg and his family to the Washington Nationals. His tremendous talent, work ethic and leadership qualities have been a cornerstone of our team since the day we selected him for MLB Draft 2009,” team owner Mark D. Lerner said in a statement.

The Nationals had drawn the 31-year-old in the first round ten years ago, a year later he made his MLB debut. Only a few months ago he had led his franchise to the first World Series title in franchise history.

As a result of the triumph, he had left the final four years of his original seven-year contract for $175 million and initially landed in the free-agent market. So now we are back in Washington.
