Baltimore Orioles — Kyle Gibson
2023 Salary: $10,000,000
35-year-old pitcher Kyle Gibson is currently making $10 million for this upcoming year. It’s the highest annual salary of any player on the Orioles’ roster. We aren’t exactly sure why Gibson was brought onto a team expected to fight for a playoff spot. Gibson is coming off a year in which he sported a 10-8 record with a 5.05 ERA. Nothing screams ‘ace’ on his resume particularly when he’s been plainly average throughout his career (89-91 career record, 4.52 career ERA).
