John Danks – White Sox – $15.75 Million


Danks may be the 67th highest paid player of all time, but ever since he signed his contract with the White Sox, he hasn’t lived up to his hyped reputation.

He hasn’t had a winning record since 2010 and even went 7-15 with a 4.71 ERA in 2015.

Josh Hamilton – Rangers – $28.41 Million


Its fair to say that the career of the 1999 #1 overall Draft pick has been a topsy turvy one.

Despite his problems with injuries and drug and alcohol issues, he still has a salary of just over $28 million.
