A-Rod makes more than the Astros

And the N.Y. Yankees, once again, own baseball’s biggest payroll
Alex Rodriguez will make more this year than all of the Houston Astros combined – a lot more, like $4 million more. A-Rod’s $29-million salary tops the major leagues for the 13th consecutive season, about $4 million more than the Astros’ payroll, the lowest this year in the major leagues.
Alex Rodriguez’s $29-million salary tops the major leagues for the 13th consecutive season, and the Yankees are on track to have the highest payroll on opening day for the 15th consecutive year. What’s worse, the declining Rodriguez is recovering from hip surgery and isn’t expected to play until after the all-star break if at all this season.
New York Yankees starting pitcher CC Sabathia and his $24.3-million salary rank fifth among Major League Baseball players this season, and the perennially free-spending Yankees also own the No. 1 (Alex Rodriguez), No. 4 (Vernon Wells) and No. 6 (Mark Teixeira) largest contracts.
Mark Teixeira’s low average, high pop, switch-hitting bat swings for $23.1 million, good for sixth-place around Major League Baseball this season. The New York Yankees’ first baseman will start the season on the disabled list.
When the New York Yankees acquired Vernon Wells and his fourth-ranked $24.6-million salary this spring training, it gave baseball’s largest payroll four of the top six salaried players this season.
