The Home Run Derby has become quite profitable for Pete Alonso.

Alonso on Monday won the Home Run Derby, marking his second time taking the crown. The 26-year-old also won in 2019, when he won NL Rookie of the Year and led the NL with 53 home runs.

Alonso beat Salvador Perez 35-28 in the first round; Juan Soto 16-15 in the semifinals; and Trey Mancini 23-22 in the finals to win it.

In 2019, MLB began awarding $1 million bonuses to the winner of the Home Run Derby. That means Alonso has taken home $2 million from the Home Run Derby. By comparison, he has earned $1.47 million in salaries from the New York Mets since 2019.

Alonso is still in his first three seasons of team control. During that period, teams get to decide a player’s salary, which is why Alonso makes less than a million dollars despite being a major power hitter.
