India, which completed exactly three years of service time for the 2023 season, had disagreed with the Cincinnati club on salary ahead of this season.

He demanded an annual salary of $4 million, while the club responded by offering $3.2 million.

He could have gone to the mediation committee, but in the end, both sides agreed on a multi-year contract. The contract replaced salary adjustments for the 2024 and 2025 seasons.

According to local media such as “MLB.com “, they agreed to receive an annual salary of $5 million for the 2025 season instead of receiving $3.8 million, slightly lower than the 2024 season player demand.

In addition, it included a clause that increases the salary of the 2025 season depending on the contents of the 2024 season.

According to MLB.com , 150 games or 600 at-bats in the 2024 season will add a maximum of $2.05 million to next season’s salary.

Bonuses for individual award are also included. If the player achieves only one of the three conditions: All-Star selection, Silver Slugger (ranked first to third), and MVP (ranked first to fifth) in the league, he will also receive an additional 100,000 dollars.

India, who was selected by Cincinnati as the fifth overall pick in the first round of the 2018 draft, made its big league debut in 2021 and recorded a batting average of 0.255 on-base percentage of 0.350 slugging percentage in 372 games over three years.

He won the Rookie of the Year with a batting average of 0.269 on-base-plus-slugging percentage of 0.376 with 21 home runs and 69 RBIs in the 2021 season, but he has not been able to show as much productivity in the next two seasons.
