Shohei Ohtani is one of the most popular players in all of Major League Baseball.
The Anaheim Angels superstar bats and pitches, and he is elite at both.
Right now, he is third in the entire MLB with 44 home runs on the season, while also having a 9-2 pitching record with a 3.36 ERA.
The 26 year old is one of the most unique talents in all of baseball.
However, he is not being paid anywhere in the stratosphere of his production.
According to Sportrac, the Angels will be paying him just $3 million for the 2020-21 MLB season.
A Tweet from Greg Beacham of The Associated Press on February 8 explains Ohtani's contract with the Angels.
What is absolutely mind boggling is that according to Spotrac, 11 different players on the Indiana Pacers will make more money in NBA salary next season than Ohtani will make in MLB salary.
The Pacers were not even a playoff team last season, and Ohtani is arguably the best player in his entire sport.
