Shin-Soo Choo net worth and contract details: In 2014 Shin-Soo signed a 7-year $130 million contract with the Texas Rangers. He rejected a 7-year $140 million contract from the Yankees which actually would have paid him slightly less when state and city taxes are considered. By choosing a Texas team, Shin-Soo could earn an extra 10% on his contract compared to what he would have earned in New York. Using real numbers, under his Texas deal, Shin-Soo will likely make around $11 million per season after taxes. In New York, even with a slightly larger pre-tax paycheck his after-tax pay would have been $10 million. So over the course of the contract he'll keep an extra $7 million.
