No positions make more money in Major League Baseball than starting pitchers and first basemen.
This season, the ten highest-paid starting pitchers have an average salary of $US22.2 million, led by Zack Greinke of the Dodgers who will be paid $US26.0 million this season (including $US2 million of his original signing bonus). First base is the only other position where the top ten players average more than $US15.0 million.
Meanwhile, relief pitchers (non-closers) are the cheapest position with an average of just $US6.9 million among the top ten. Here are the minimum, maximum, and average salary for the ten highest-paid at each position.
