MLB.COM said on the 29th (Korea time) that “Detroit signed a six-year, $28.64 million (about 38.3 billion won) contract with Colt Keith, a minor league infielder.”

Keith, who is likely to be included in the opening entry of the big league this season, will receive a contract bonus of $2 million (2.3 billion won) along with an annual salary of $2.5 million (about 3.3 billion won) this year.

The annual salary for the 2025 season will be $3.5 million (about 4.7 billion won), the 2026 and 2027 seasons will be $4 million (about 5.4 billion won), and the 2028 and 2029 seasons will be $5 million (about 6.7 billion won).

Club options and escalator provisions were included from 2030 to 2032. Therefore, the contract could be increased by up to $82 million (KRW 109.7 billion) for nine years.

MLB.COM said, “It is Detroit’s largest contract with a player who has not made his big league debut.”

Keith was drafted by Detroit in the fifth round of the 2020 amateur draft. Keys, a left-handed hitter at second and third base, played an active part in the minor leagues last year.

After posting a batting average of 0.325, 14 homers and 50 RBIs in 59 Double-A games, he had a batting average of 0.287, 13 homers and 51 RBIs in 67 games in Triple-A since the end of June. He was also selected as a Minor League All-Star.
