How Much Does Corbin Burnes Make?
Corbin Burnes receives an annual average salary of $6,500,000.
Corbin Burnes is definitely the best player in the league when it comes to cashing out this summer.
Burnes was a key component of Milwaukee’s 95-win, playoff-bound season; not only did he have his finest individual season, but he was also the league’s most dominant player at his position.
Both his individual and team accomplishments this season came at a great time as he is first-year arbitration-eligible this winter, meaning he and the Milwaukee Brewers will examine his current compensation of $608,000.
If they are unable to reach an agreement for the 2022 season, they will go to a hearing where an arbitrator will determine the player’s salary.
Burnes is the type of bull you want throwing long into games since he is a unique blend of power and fall-off-the-table off-speed.
Even after the spider tank crackdown, his stuff remained practically impenetrable; while his spin rate dropped (as did almost every other pitcher in the league), his elite ranking was maintained.
He was the most dominant pitcher throughout the whole season, making him a strong contender for the NL MVP and Cy Young awards.
In previous years, he had had a mixed bag of results. In 2019, he did not have the same success in his PY-2, but he was more in line with the ace he has become in PY-1.
In the 60-game 2020 MLB season, he had a 2.11 ERA and a 13.3 SO9 rate, which was a career high.
Due to his probable candidacy for NL MVP and NL Cy Young, as well as his NL All-Star appearance in his PY, Burnes’ agent will almost certainly argue that he is deserving of a big contract rise.
His eye-popping statistics from his PY are also worth noting: an 11-5 record, a 2.43 ERA, a 0.940 WHIP, and the sixth highest SOs in the ML.
