Giancarlo Stanton’s trajectory

giancarlo-stanton-comparables-performance

The Miami Marlins recently agreed to a $325 million contract with Giancarlo Stanton, locking him up for most of his career (unless he opts out after the fifth year). Stanton is one of 20 players in MLB history with at least 150 homers in his first five seasons, per the Baseball-Reference.com Play Index, putting him in the company of all-time greats Willie Mays and Joe DiMaggio, as well as a couple less-renowned players of recent years, such as Dan Uggla and Mark Reynolds. Stanton has been near the middle of this illustrious pack so far in terms of overall value, closest to Orlando Cepeda and Mark McGwire.
