Minnesota Twins catcher Joe Mauer is slipping.
But in this category, no one can feel too sorry for him.
No. 7 comes in at No. 20 on the list, as Mauer is set to make $25 million in salary and endorsements in 2013. Last year, he was ranked 12th by SI.
Others with (very loose) Minnesota ties on the list:
No. 5: Tiger Woods, $40.8 million (future Ms. Lindsey Vonn).
No. 10: Zach Grienke, $29 million (ex-Royal, should be in Twins rotation).
No. 13: Johan Santana, $26 million (ex-Twin, looking at retirement due to injuries).
Who's number one?
Boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. outearns everyone this year, making an estimated $90 million -- without endorsements.
