With the New York Yankees agreeing to terms on a seven-year, $155 million deal with Japanese right-hander Masahiro Tanaka on Wednesday morning, another pitcher has joined the $100 million club.

A grand total of 13 pitchers have now received $100 million deals, as Tanaka joins Kevin Brown (LAD), Mike Hampton (COL), Barry Zito (SF), Johan Santana (NYM), CC Sabathia (NYY), Cliff Lee (PHI), Matt Cain (SF), Cole Hamels (PHI). Zack Greinke (LAD), Felix Hernandez (SEA), Justin Verlander (DET) and Clayton Kershaw (LAD).

Turning our attention to the future, here is a look at my best guess on the next six pitchers who will receive $100 million contracts, in no particular order.
