There are completely different expectations for every player, and Votto is not reaching the expectations for him "this season".
Joey Votto has 103 wRC this season. He is making $17M.
Brandon Phillips has 57 wRC this season. He is making $10M.
$17M/103 = $165,000 per weighted run created.
$10M/57 = $175,000 per weighted run created.
Brandon Phillips is making more money per run created. I only looked at those two players. There may be more.
