Predicting the Contracts for the Next MLB Aces Up for New Deals

Gabe Zaldivar@gabezalPop Culture Lead WriterFebruary 20, 2013

Felix Hernandez was the latest ace pitcher to get paid, and the next maestros in line to bring in a fortune are Justin Verlander, Clayton Kershaw, Tim Lincecum and Adam Wainwright.

While we may have to wait a while to know with certainty how much these guys will be paid, recent contract extensions and signings have given us confidence in these predictions.

How will Wainwright’s mediocre 2012 season factor into his contract? What’s next up for Kershaw, the best left-hander in the game? These are just a few of the quandaries solved.

Join MLB Lead Writer Zachary Rymer and MLB contributor Gabe Zaldivar as they break down some of the best pitchers in the game and what kind of deals they will garner in the next few months.
