This season has been marked with monster contract signing and even more monster extensions, sometimes to players that make you scratch your head and say, “Wait, really?”.

There’s a twofold root to these signings: teams are scrambling to have to avoid arbitration hearings with some of their highest valued players and players are so scared of job certainty that they’ll gladly take an extension deal—even if it’s wildly below their value.

We will continue to update this tracker as the deals inevitably roll in.
