    Could New York Yankees’ Giancarlo Stanton opt-out of contract after 2020 season?

    One of the most controversial players for the Yankees is outfielder Giancarlo Stanton, who has struggled to remain healthy for the past two years. After battling numerous ailments in 2019, he started off the spring with a calf-strain that forced him out for several weeks. It was unlikely he was going to start the regular season if coronavirus hadn’t shut down baseball operations.

    Stanton has been relatively healthy his entire career, which suggests that the Yankees training staff might be doing something wrong and causing a spike in vulnerability. After enjoying no fewer than 318 plate appearances the past ten years, he only logged 72 last season and a career-low three home runs. Despite these dismal stats, he is one of the leagues premier hitters and offensive threats, providing plenty of value to a Yankees lineup that focuses on sluggers. The big question is, will he like to opt-out of his contract after the 2020 season?

    Stanton will be 31 in 2021 and set to earn $29 million, increasing to $32 million until 2025. The length of his contract extends until 2028, where the club has an option to buy him out for $10 million.

    Considering how much money he is scheduled to make, I cannot imagine that Stanton will opt-out of his contract. He is set to earn $26 million this season, and assuming the year will be stripped to only a minimal amount of games, his price tag will only increase.
