Japanese super pitcher Darvish Yu (36) once again hit a jackpot.

The San Diego Padres announced on the 10th (Korean time) that they had signed a six-year, $108 million contract extension with Darvish.

Considering Darvish’s age in his mid-30s, it’s literally a jackpot. This allowed Darvish to continue his playing career with a huge salary until his early 40s.

The reason Darvish received a long-term contract as a gift is clear. This is because he boasts of not only consistent performance but also great durability.

Darvish, who joined Texas through a posting in 2012, has so far only started 242 games, digested 1488 innings, and has a record of 95-75 with an ERA of 3.50. 안전놀이터

In particular, his cumulative annual salary is staggering. Darvish’s major league contract starts at $56 million over six years with the Texas Rangers. In particular, as the posting cost reached $51.7 million, the Texas club invested more than $100 million to acquire Darvish.

Afterwards, in 2018, when he obtained FA qualification, he changed into a Chicago Cubs uniform and hit a jackpot of 126 million dollars over 6 years. Darvish was captured by San Diego, which started aggressive player recruitment work, and through a trade in 2021, Ha-seong Kim had a bowl of rice.

In San Diego, Darvish digested 166.1 innings in 2021 and threw a whopping 194.2 innings last year, consistently keeping his place in the starting rotation.

Darvish earned 290 million dollars (approximately 365.1 billion won) in 18 years in the big leagues. This is the highest cumulative income ever among Asian major leaguers.

Following Darvish, retired Ichiro Suzuki earned $167.08 million over 19 years, and Masahiro Tanaka, who returned to Japan, hit the jackpot of $155 million with just one contract.

Among Korean players, Choo Shin-soo continued his 15-year career and generated a cumulative income of 147.9 million dollars (approximately 186.2 billion won). Ryu Hyun-jin, who is currently in Toronto, has signed two long-term contracts and is earning $116 million (about 146 billion won). .
