New York Yankees’ outfielder Aaron Judge, the 2017 American League Rookie of the Year, will make only $622,300 this season. He hit 52 home runs last season, yet he’s not even a millionaire.
He’s his team’s best player, yet he’s one of its lowest paid players. Japanese born pitcher Masahiro Tanaka with a 2017 ERA of 4.74 will make $22.14 million this season. Pitcher CC Sabathia, long past his prime, is slotted to make $10 million this season. How does this not piss Aaron Judge off?
Can you even get a decent apartment in New York City if you don’t make a million a year?
