The team, however, deferred half of the money to be paid over time, according to WLWT.
So, the Reds are still paying him and will still pay him an estimated $3.59 million through 2024.
That means the kid will be getting $17,968,750 between now and 2024. What a deal. Not bad for a man who hasn’t played for the team since 2008.
In total, with the Mariners, Reds, and White Sox, Griffey has so far made over an estimated $154.4 million. After he is done getting paid by the Reds in 2024, that number will be at over an estimated $172.41 million.
