Boston Red Sox — Chris Sale
2023 Salary: $27,500,000
The sidewinding lefty is making a cool $27.5 million this year. Once one of the game’s best pitchers, Sale has struggled big time with injuries over the course of the last few years. His last All-Star appearance was in 2018. Since then, he’s gone a combined 5-13 over the last three years. We simply cannot take him serious as a top-shelf ace anymore considering his propensity for sitting over long stretches of the last few MLB seasons.
