Mark Teixeira, New York Yankees: 2013 Salary: $23.1 million
Maybe making more than $20 million in salary causes injuries, as Mark 'Tex' Texeira suffered a wrist injury while participating in the World Baseball Classic prior to the new season. Teixeira is a five time Gold Glove winner and he has also won three Silver Slugger Awards. The New York Yankee also holds the all-time major league record for most games with a home run from both sides of the plate, with 13.
But, during his Yankee tenure, he's been criticized for disappearing when it counts, in addition to his countless injuries.
