Brett Anderson extended 2010-2015. Good times.

The A's signed Brett Anderson to a four-year contract, an agreement that runs through 2013 with options for 2014 and 2015...............

........The details of the contract: It's a $12.5 million guarantee over four years, and the max (including the two option years) is $31 million.

He gets a $1 million signing bonuses and salaries of $500,000 this year (a $90,000 raise over his original salary), $1 million in 2011, $3 million in 2012 and $5.5 million in 2013.

The club options are for $8 million in 2014 and $12 million in 2015. If the A's don't exercise either option, they'd pay a $1.5 million buyout.


Excellent signing. ;-D
Cost certainty for a terrific young player for 6 years, yes please :-L :-L

Not really a fan of these kinds of contracts for pitchers. Just way too much injury risk involved. If he stays healthy it is certainly a good deal for them though.

Way too much risk? He's guaranteed 12.5M and the big thing is that the team has an option to buy out a FA year at a reasonable price.
