Is your favorite MLB player on this list?
Major League Baseball (MLB) players do not have restrictions on the earnings they can make, resulting in some of the highest paid athletes in the world. Although they do have the longest professional sports season, the amount of money these players earn is something many individuals are unable to wrap their heads around.
Pitchers often sign the biggest highest paid deals. Many power hitters are also getting paid well for the work they are doing for their club, even without including endorsements and other off the field opportunities.
No salary cap for MLB players means they can earn as much as a club is willing to pay for their position and for the work they do on the field. This number increases every year and will likely continue increasing. For the 2015 season, these are the top MLB players and the earnings they are making for their work on the field for the season.
