Carlos Lee Salary
Carlos Lee's latest contract guarantees him an annual salary of $19 million
Carlos Lee is a professional left fielder for the MLB for the Houston Astros and has a net worth of $35 million. Carlos Lee has earned his net worth through his career with Chicago White Sox, Texas Rangers, Milwaukee Brewers and the Houston Astros. In 1999, Carlos made his debut playing for the Chicago White Sox and remained with the White Sox until 2006. He was also a designated hitter, for a few games, because of his ability to hit both power and average. He was given the nickname of El Caballo, (the horse) by Ken Harrelson, a White Sox tv announcer and Lee's fan club goes by the name of Los Cabillitos (Little Horses.) In the 2005-2006 season Lee was traded to the Milwaukee Brewers and in 2006 was traded to the Texas Rangers. The Brewers tried to re-sign Lee, but could not come up with a satisfactory deal. So he signed a contract with the Rangers. Later that year Lee signed a six year contract with the Houston Astros for six million dollars. Lee started out great in the beginning with the Astros, which tied him with Miguel Cabrera and Prince Fielder in the National League. But there was a problem. Of all the MLB left fielders, Lee had the lowest range factor (1.56) in 2009. He was then put on first base and after a while, became the first baseman on a more regular basis. It was also discovered that Lee had the worst contract signings in baseball.
He was born in Aguadulce, Panama in 1976. He has a brother, also named Carlos, who is a player for the Milwaukee Brewers minor League. He is married and has three children. A son, Karlos, and two daughters, Karla and Cassandra. Lee is a three time All Star for 2005, 2006,and 2007. He has also won the Silver Slugger Award twice, once in 2005 and once in 2007.
