Angels, Justin Upton Agree to Five-Year Contract

The Houston Astros pitcher helped his team to a World Series win on Wednesday night, and now he's set to marry his model fiancée Upton this weekend.

The Angels and the 30-year-old outfielder have reached an agreement on a five-year deal worth $106 million.

Upton's original six-year, $132.75 million deal with the Detroit Tigers turns into a seven-year, $150.25 million contract.

Upton hit.273/.361/.540 with 35 homers and 109 RBIs last season with the Angels and Detroit Tigers.

Upton's contract runs through 2022. The yearly payout, per ESPN's Buster Olney, will be: $16M in 2018, $18M in 2019, $21M in 2020, $23M in 2021 and $28M in 2022. The morning after the season ended, Angels general manager Billy Eppler acknowledged that signing Upton to another deal was a secondary option. The Angels were better than expected, going 80-82 this season. They'll need some pitching too. The high-power duo got engaged just before the 2016 baseball season and announced the happy news to the world at the 2016 Met Gala, where Upton debuted her one-of-a-kind ring, designed by Verlander and jeweler Anita Ko. You have to wonder how much payroll ownership is willing to take on.
