Dominican player Juan José Soto Pacheco has won the affection of the New York Yankees fans based on his impressive demonstration of power in each of his at-bats, but it must be remembered that the player will become a free agent at the end of the MLB season.

There has been much speculation about the figure that will be reflected in the contract that the Dominican will sign with his next team in Major League Baseball, whether with the Yankees or with some other franchise.

Soto maintains an offensive line of .318/.425/.599 with 17 home runs, 11 doubles, 3 triples, and 53 runs batted in, making him an interesting piece for any team that wants to catapult his offensive actions.

According to new projections made by ESPN (28 in total), after consulting specialized personnel such as executives, agents, and media experts, the contract that Soto Pacheco would sign would reach 600 million dollars. Specifically, three projections foresee that figure: 14 years in exchange for 600 million dollars, 12 years in exchange for 605 million dollars, and 10 years in exchange for 655 million dollars.
