Brewers close to extending top prospect Chourio, before he's played an MLB game.


Jackson Chourio nearing record-setting contract extension with Brewers (


Ballpark estimate to be 8 years and $80M-$90M.


Figure without an extension, he would make say, $2.5M in his first three seasons. If he's every bit as good as advertised he'll make something like $11M, $20M, $30M in ARB years. (Correct me if that's way off).  If 8/$80M-$90M is the deal, then you are getting two FA years for a total of $17.5M-$27.5M which is incredible value, if he's a $40M-$45M/AAV player by then. Incredible value in the would-be ARB 2 and ARB 3 years as well. 


Orioles want to be like the Brewers, right? Orioles have the one prospect better than Chourio, right? 


If this goes through, even 8/$100M for Holliday would appear to be a bargain 6 years from now if he's a solid major leaguer, though the ceiling appears high. The O's have a few guys that are MLB proven already that they could seek early extensions with to save money down the road.


Someone please let the fake real estate tycoon in charge of the O's know how to forward think.

Looks like a done deal for Chourio. "Close to $80M"

Wow, a very proactive move by the Brewers.  I have to admit, I had to check to see if I missed him being called up, at the end of the year.
