Ken Griffey Jr. Will Be Reds' 4th-Highest Paid Player in 2023 Due to Deferred Salary


Griffey still counts for $3.6 million on Cincinnati's books, per Spotrac. Among current Reds players, only Joey Votto and Wil Myers will make more. Mike Moustakas also had $22 million outstanding on his contract when he was released in January.

According to Sports Illustrated's Tom Verducci, Griffey agreed to defer $57.5 million at 4 percent interest. He'd begin earning that money in 2010 and continue receiving annual payouts until 2025.

For years, Bobby Bonilla has been the gold standard for a retired MLB star cashing a paycheck thanks to some shrewd contract negotiations. Griffey is giving the six-time All-Star a run for his money.

I had no idea this was the Hunter case.

He didn’t pay $100,000 in taxes for two years.
I pay at about 12% of total income so he must have been doing well. He paid 250% of it?

I hear about the gun element but I didn’t know (per state obviously) that was a check mark for addiction - signed legal document I get that- for 2 weeks. I’m guessing he had no need rouse it. I’m glad avoided the want.

This was it?
Of course he pleads.
