NEW YORK (AP) — Paul Goldschmidt’s $144.5 million , six-year contract with the St. Louis Cardinals includes a $20 million signing bonus to be paid over the next five years.Goldschmidt had a $14.5 million salary this season in the option year of a contract he signed with Arizona ahead of the 2013 season. That deal originally guaranteed the first baseman $32.5 million for six years and will wind up paying $46 million for seven seasons, including a $1 million assignment bonus for the trade.His new deal, announced last weekend, calls for signing bonus payments of $2.25 million each Jan. 15 and July 15 in 2020, 2021, 2023 and 2024, and $1 million on Jan. 15 and July 15 in 2022.Goldschmidt keeps the $14.5 million salary this season and gets $22 million annually from 2021-24.He would earn a $1.5 million bonus for MVP, $1 million for second, $500,000 for third, $250 Martin Prado Jersey ,000 for fourth or fifth, and $100,000 for sixth through 10th. He would get $250,000 for becoming an All-Star, $250,000 for a Gold Glove, $50,000 for a Silver Slugger, $100,000 for World Series MVP and $150,000 for World Series MVP. He would get $50 ,000 for Division Series MVP is the award is established and he wins it.Acquired in December from Arizona, the six-time All-Star first baseman gave up a chance to become a free agent after this season. Only a few teams are apparently still in the running for Manny Machado, although the Chicago White Sox have an offer for an eight-year deal on the table for the free-agent shortstop, according to Jeff Passan of ESPN.However, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reported the White Sox offer hasn't risen above a seven-year deal.The Philadelphia Phillies are still engaged with Machado as well, while a third mystery team is also in the hunt.Both the White Sox and the Phillies have been targeting him throughout the offseason, while each has used personal relationships to try to sway the four-time All-Star.Philadelphia recently hired former Baltimore Orioles third base coach Bobby Dickerson, who, as Matt Gelb of The Athletic noted, is a mentor to Machado. The two worked together from the time Machado was drafted in 2010 until he was traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers last season.Additionally, Chicago signed outfielder Jon Jay Wei-Yin Chen Jersey , who, along with Yonder Alonso, grew up with Machado in Miami and remains good friends with him, per Nightengale.Still, it could all come down to the length and money on the contract.Though all the offers aren't yet known, the White Sox are clearly serious about this pursuit based on the eight-year deal, which would be the longest the organization has ever given out.Meanwhile, both teams are reportedly also in pursuit of free-agent outfielder Bryce Harper.
