Chicago Cubs third baseman Anthony Rizzo signed a three-year contract extension worth $40.4 million Thursday, the team announced.
Rizzo will make $3.5 million this season and $3 million in 2018, and $4.5 in 2019.
He’ll make $4 million in 2021, $5 million in 2022 and $5.5 during the final three seasons of the contract, the Cubs announced.
In addition to the new deal, Rizzos will receive a $5,000 bonus for every win in 2021.
He’ll receive $3,500 per win in 2022, $4,000 in 2023 and $2,500 in 2024.
Rizos will be eligible for incentives and incentives will increase every two years.
Ricardo Rodriguez, another outfielder, will earn $4M next season and will make another $3M in 2021 and $6M in 2022.
He also will earn a $1.8M bonus in 2022 for every five wins and $1,400 for every seven wins.
Rodriguez’s $4MM is the second-highest on the Cubs.
His deal is the most lucrative on the team behind Carlos Gomez’s.
The deal will pay him $11.4MM in 2021 but is expected to be fully guaranteed in 2022 at $7.5MM.
Rozers salary is a bit higher than Gomez’s, at $8.9MM in 2020.
But the Cubs will not be paying for his bat.
He is signed through the 2021 season, and his $6.9M base salary is fully guaranteed.
