Jacob deGrom's $185 million, five-year contract with Texas includes a pair of conditional options, one that protects the Rangers against an arm injury and another that would make the deal worth $222 million over six seasons if he is remains a top pitcher at the end of 2027.

The deal agreed to Friday with the two-time Cy Young Award winner includes salaries of $30 million next year, $40 million each in 2024 and '25, $38 million in 2026 and $37 million in 2027.

DeGrom's $37 million average annual salary is second among pitchers behind $43.3 million for former New York Mets teammate Max Scherzer, topping Gerrit Cole's $36 million with the New York Yankees as part of $324 million, nine-year contract.
