    Marcus Semien, official says, will receive $175 million for seven years from the #Rangers. @JonHeyman on it

    totally baseball ignorant. Did I understand correctly that the Jays will get something back since they qualified him?

    You got it.

    Since the Blue Jays qualified Semien this off-season under the current CBA, they now receive an extra draft pick in the Competitive Balance Round B at the end of the second round. Texas forfeits its second highest pick in the 2022 MLB Draft and $500,00 in international bonus pool money.

    Good on Semien turning a 1yr prove it deal into a 7yr, 175mill deal. A yr ago no one really wanted him, now he's a face of a franchise again.

    It's a deal I'm sure transpired because teams were fine giving him a 5yr deal, then a couple upped it to 6yrs, and then Texas said Eff it, 7yrs and they were the only ones to offer 7.

    7yrs to a 31yr old, who turns 32 in September (so he's a Ranger at 39 technically) is ridiculously dumb.

    Yep. I understand they have a lot of room but even if they get another couple big ticket players. They have one of the worst rotations in the league.
