Joe Mauer, Minnesota Twins: 2013 salary: $23 million
The Minnesota Twins player is the only catcher in MLB history to win three batting titles. His trophy case is already full as he has won three consecutive Gold Glove awards (2008â€“2010) and the 2009 American League (AL) Most Valuable Player (MVP) Award. His 2013 has gotten off to a great start! After playing in the World Baseball Classic for the first time, it was just announced that the Twins catcher, is, well, having twins with his wife, who he recently married in December. What would probably make him and Twins fans just as happy is a World Series title.
