Rays lock down Snell with five-year, $50 million deal

The Rays agreed to a five-year, $50 million deal with reigning American League Cy Young Award winner Blake Snell, the club announced Thursday. The deal extends through the 2023 season and the left-hander could make an additional $2 million in incentives.

The Rays caught some heat for giving Snell a paltry off-season raise, and they seem to making up for it. They claim it’s the biggest deal ever to a pitcher pre-arbitration. Regardless, with this and the Brandon Lowe signing, it looks like they’re trying to lock up a young core for some pennant runs.

If the article is right, then this is year 1, so this covers 3 arb years and a FA year ... so roughly 5/10/15/20 except some bit of it is probably in a signing bonus for this year (or a $1 M salary or similar). Great deal for the Rays if he's healthy, solid money for him.
