Right-handed pitcher Logan Webb of the San Francisco Giants has signed a five-year contract extension with his team.
The San Francisco club announced on its official website on the 15th (Korean time) that it had signed a five-year, $90 million (117.4 billion won) contract extension until 2028 with Webb.
It is an average of 18 million dollars (23.5 billion won) 메이저사이트per year, but it is not paid evenly over 5 years. The annual salary next year will be 8 million dollars (10.4 billion won), but it will increase to 12 million dollars (15.7 billion won) in 2025. In 2026 and 2027, it will increase to 23 million dollars (30 billion won), and in 2028, the last year, it will be 24 million dollars (31.3 billion won).
A native of Rocklin, near Sacramento, California, Webb was drafted by San Francisco with the 118th overall pick in the fourth round of the 2014 draft. He’s about 200km from Rocklin to San Francisco, but he’s practically playing for his hometown team, given that he’s a huge American.
Webb, who debuted in the American Professional Baseball Major League (MLB) in 2019 and recorded 2 wins and 3 losses, recorded a double-digit multiplier for the first time in 2021 with 11 wins and 3 losses and an average ERA of 3.03. Last year, he was in charge of the San Francisco mound with a 15-9 record and a 2.90 earned run average.
Webb, who ranked 11th in the National League Cy Young Award voting last year and established himself as the San Francisco ace, started as a starting pitcher in the opening game of this season, but unfortunately his performance is not good. He has 3 losses and a 4.76 earned run average in 3 starts.
However, the president of the club, Farhan Jardi, does not hide his anticipation for Webb. In particular, President Jardi revealed that he had started negotiations for an extension contract with Webb at a fan fest event held at Oracle Park in February.
