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.

Survey shows Americans most stressed about future of nation
Of those 59 percent, 56 percent say they're heavily in debt. "We're seeing significant stress transcending party lines", Arthur C. And for the decade that the survey on over 3,400 participants has been conducted, women have been more stressed in general.

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.
