Peralta gets $1.17M signing bonus in $15.5M Brewers deal

PHOENIX (AP) — Milwaukee pitcher Freddy Peralta gets a signing bonus of $1,174,800 as part of his $15.5 million, five-year contract with the Brewers, a deal with two club options that could be worth $30 million over seven seasons.

The deal for the 23-year-old right-hander covers two years of club salary control and his three years of arbitration eligibility.

If he turns into a star, the Brewers will have him at far under market value. But for now, he has a contract guaranteeing nearly 30 times the $533,258 he earned last year.
