Brett Anderson gets $5 million signing bonus from Dodgers

LOS ANGELES (AP) Pitcher Brett Anderson gets a $5 million signing bonus as part of his $10 million, one-year contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers and can make an additional $4 million in performance bonuses.

The 26-year-old left-hander, whose deal was completed last week, is due half the signing bonus on Jan. 15 and the rest on Feb. 15. He receives a $5 million salary and can earn bonuses based on innings pitched: $300,000 each for 150 and 155; $350,000 apiece for 160, 165, 170 and 175; and $400,000 each for 180, 185, 190, 195 and 200.

Anderson is 27-32 with three saves and a 3.73 ERA in 92 games in six major league seasons with Oakland and Colorado. He was 1-3 with a 2.91 ERA last year with the Rockies, limited to eight starts because of a broken left index finger and lower back surgery.
