The currently known contract size is 33.5 million dollars (42.16 billion won).

Toronto had signed 11 of 12 players eligible for salary adjustments, including Vladimir Guerrero Jr. When Bisset’s contract is announced, he will end his player contract this year without any salary adjustments. The $2.5 million gap between Bisset and Toronto was the largest along with Kyle Tucker (Houston Astros) among players facing salary adjustments. Tucker, like Bisset, is currently unsigned, asking for $7.5 million.

He played in 159 games last year, hitting .290 (189 hits in 652 at-bats) with 24 homers and 93 RBI. He rose to the top of the American League (AL) most hits for two consecutive years and became a representative player for the team.
