Even though Puig did not want a higher payday, he will had $12M to his name as a signing bonus. The signing bonus is part of his $42M deal, which is spread over seven years.

If you combine his guaranteed contract and divide his $12M bonus over seven seasons, Puig will be making just over $7.2M. Hopefully with the $12M bonus, Puig will show production in the 2017 season.
