C.J. Wilson Contract Breakdown

The Los Angeles Angels will have one of the best starting rotations in baseball next season, and they will pay accordingly. Left-hander C.J. Wilson was added to the staff last week thanks to a five-year, $77.5 million contract, and the Associated Press has the complete details of the pact. Here are Wilson's annual salaries:

  • 2012: $10 million
  • 2013: $11 million
  • 2014: $16 million
  • 2015: $18 million
  • 2016: $20 million

Those salaries for Wilson in the final three years of his deal match the salaries of Jered Weaver, who signed a five-year, $85 million extension in August. Weaver will make $14 million in 2012, Dan Haren will make $12.75 million, and Ervin Santana will make $11.2 million, meaning the Angels will pay their top four starting pitchers a combined $48.45 million next season.

Wilson has a $2.5 million signing bonus, which is split up into payments of $500,000 up front, and $1 million each on July 1, 2013 and July 1, 2014. In addition, he can earn the following bonuses each year:

  • Cy Young Award: $150,000 for winning; $75,000 for finishing second; $75,000 for finishing third
  • $50,000 for making the All-Star team
  • $75,000 for winning a Gold Glove
  • $75,000 for winning League Championship Series MVP
  • $100,000 for World Series MVP

In addition, Wilson "may not be traded without his permission through 2013. After that, Wilson may name eight teams he can't be sent to without his consent."
