Victor Martinez had a great season with the Tigers this year finishing second in MVP voting and first in OPS. He also got the best offensive WAR of his career at a 5.6. These factors contributed to the 4 year $68 million contract extension he received early this offseason, but at 35 there are many questions about Martinez's future, below is my attempt to predict it.
Martinez's extension breaks down as follows '15: $14 million '16-'18: $18 million per year, but my prediction above has those 4 years accumulating to a WAR of only 4.5 which is 1.1 less than what he had in 2014 alone. The average DH earns $7.4 million per WAR point this factor means V-Mart should earn somewhere in the range of 30-35 million dollars over the next four years, what he actually got is about double what I think he should've earned.
