Swisher’s contract was so bad that the Braves gave him his outright release recently and have essentially paid to get zero production from him in 2016.

Melvin Upton – Padres – $16.05 Million

Upton signed one of the most lucrative contracts but like others has failed in delivering the performances that warrant such a huge salary.

He has recently been relegated to being the fourth choice outfielder defensive replacement and pinch runner.
