Jered Weaver, Angels Agree On Multi-Year Contract Extension

Jered Weaver has reportedly agreed to a five-year contract extension with the Los Angeles Angels worth $85 million, a deal that buys out Weaver's final year of arbitration as well as four years of free agency.

Jered Weaver has reportedly agreed to a five-year, $85 million extension with the Los Angeles Angels. Weaver also has inserted a no-trade clause into his contract.

Jered Weaver is the ace pitcher for the Los Angeles Angels. He gets pitiful run support in Anaheim and has only a modest 14-6 record, but his ERA is hovering just over two and his WHIP is a tad bit under one. He is a Cy Young contender, and if Justin Verlander wasn't flat out dominating, he'd probably be the definite favorite.

So it should come as no surprise that the Angels and Weaver's agent Scott Boras came to a deal that'll keep him in Anaheim for the next half-decade.

Some details are trickling out. Here's what we know so far via sources like Tim Brown of Yahoo SportsBill Plunkett of the Orange County Register, and Angels announcer Victor Rojas.

  • The deal is currently reported at five years and $85 million, which will take him through the first four years of free agency.
  • There will be a no-trade clause, which will ensure that Weaver won't be getting dealt even if he struggles through a rough patch.
  • There will be a press conference on Tuesday to announce the decision.
