Mega MLB deals means five teams will spend more on their top two players in 2020 than some clubs pay entire roster
Cole's contract, which was agreed to during the MLB winter meetings, would make his deal the fourth-largest in MLB history just behind Yankees outfielder Giancarlo Stanton's 13-year, $325 million contract. Combined with pitcher Max Scherzer's 2020 salary of $35.9 million, the Nationals are spending about $71 million between the two players. The contract pays an average of $35 million a year, but just $25.5 million in 2020, according to the Associate Press. That distinction goes to Mike Trout and Albert Pujols, who will make $37.7 million and $29 million, respectively, in 2020. The Astros and Red Sox will spend $68 million and $62 million, respectively, on their two highest-paid players in 2020, according to the Baseball Prospectus data.cnbc.com
