The MLB is filled with young superstars who are underpaid by league standards, but that won't last too much longer. These players are going to get huge deals, and be the next $300 million players in the MLB. Trust us.
5. Madison Bumgarner
One of the few two-way players in the MLB right now is pitcher/slugger Madison Bumgarner. The Giants star can not only get it done on the mound, but he rakes with the bat, too.
He signed a six-year, $36.56M extension with the Giants in 2012, and is by far one of the most underpaid players in the league. That won't last for long, as he's due for an extension or free agency after the 2017 season. Bumgarner doesn't seem set on bilking the Giants for money, but they should reward him.
4. Noah Syndergaard
What can't Noah Syndergaard do? He can act, pitch, and even rock one of the best hair styles in the MLB. The 24-year-old has quickly emerged as the Mets ace starter and is off to an unbelievable start to the 2017 season.
He's currently making $606,000 for the 2017 season, but that won't last long, as he'll get an unreal payday when he hits free agency. While he won't hit that mark until 2022, it's hard to see many more pitchers snagging the mark before he does.
3. Kris Bryant
The accolades are piling up for Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant. He already has two All-Star appearances, a Rookie of the Year award, and an MVP award. Oh yeah, and he's a World Series champion too.
The young superstar received $1.05 million from the Cubs, pre-arbitration, but will be making much more than that when he's eligible for free agency. The Cubs need to lock him up, but if they don't explore an extension, he's due for a remarkable sum.
2. Bryce Harper
Bryce Harper's agent Scott Boras believes his client his worth well over $300 million, and he's probably not wrong. The 24-year-old is coming off his first down year in the MLB, but has started hot red in 2017.
He is making $13.63 this season, and is eligible for free agency in 2019. The Nationals better get their wallets ready because expect Harper to cash in for at least $300 million.
$400 million? Maybe. Yeah, probably.
1. Mike Trout
This is a no-brainer at No. 1 to make $300 miliion. Angels' Mike Trout is the best player in the MLB right now, and arguably one of the greatest players in history, and he's only 25 years old.
He signed a six-year, $144.5 million deal that expires after the 2020 season. There is no doubt that Trout is worth $300 million, and he'll likely make much more on the open market.
