Brewers sign top prospect Jackson Chourio to landmark 8-year, $82 million contract


Milwaukee Brewers prospect Jackson Chourio is only 19, hasn’t yet played a game in the majors and just signed a contract with a guarantee that shatters the previous record for a player with zero service time. The outfielder inked an eight-year, $82 million contract with club options for 2032 and 2033, the team announced Monday. Escalators based on MVP votes will push the potential value to around $142 million. It’s quite a step above the six-year, $50 million contract the Chicago White Sox awarded outfielder Luis Robert Jr. in January 2020, which was previously the largest awarded to a player who hadn’t yet made his MLB debut.
