Rafael Devers will pay $1 million on a $3 million loan

It’s no secret that Rafael Devers’ deal with the Boston Red Sox was one of the biggest signings in baseball in recent memory. In fact, he belongs to the select 300 club. Specifically, his contract was agreed upon for 11 years at $331 million, which would put his salary at nearly 30.1 ‘sticks’ per season.

However, that big Bigoca red leg might not be for the third baseman. Few know that he actually got less than half of that money. Yes, as it reads, Carita cannot enjoy its more than 300 ‘melons’ alone, as a good portion of them must be distributed among various sources.

For example, 40% of the total amount is subject to federal tax in the United States, and 5% goes to the Massachusetts state treasury. All in all, the discount doesn’t end there, you also have to pick up 5% associated with Rep 1 Baseball Agency, which represents Sanchez’s origin.

One might think that losing 50% of money is already a lot, but there is more. When Devers signed with the Red Sox in 2013, he received $1.5 million for his signing. Of this, it is estimated that between 30% and 50% were in the bags of the coaching program, the late former coach Ruddy Santín.

Four years later, Rafael arrived in the MLB after a meteoric rise through Boston’s youth ranks, but few know that during that period, he traded a portion of his future earnings to the big leagues for $3 million. This allowed him and his family to improve their quality of life. His pledged percentage is 10% of his future contracts as a major leaguer.

Our claim was conducted with Big League Advantage, an organization responsible for providing loans to prospects in exchange for a percentage of their earnings as MLB players.

All that remains is to understand that in 2033, when the contract with the Red Sox expires, ​​Carita will have earned 348.74 million in the best game of baseball in the world. Delivered 34.8 to BLA. That’s 10% and 1060% interest he was lending during his minor league days. For this reason, of the 331 million he admitted, only 132.4 was his. Things are so clear.
