New Dodgers pitcher Brett Anderson is guaranteed $10 million in 2015, but could earn another $4 million in performance bonuses per the Associated Press.

His $10 million guarantee is broken up into a $5 million signing bonus (half due January 15, the other half due February 15) and a $5 million base salary in 2015.

Anderson's contract incentives begin at 150 innings, a number he hasn't reached since pitching 175⅓ innings in 30 starts in his rookie season in 2009.

In 2015 with the Dodgers, Anderson would earn $300,000 for each of 150 and 155 innings, $350,000 for each of 160, 165, 170 and 175 innings, and $400,000 for each of 180, 185, 190, 195 and 200 innings.

From 2010-2014, Anderson has topped 100 innings once (in 2010) and has averaged 64 innings per season during the last five years. The last time Anderson has totaled 150 innings in any two-season span was 2010-2011.

Anderson made $8 million in 2014 with the Rockies. Colorado declined a $12 million club option for 2015 on Nov. 2, instead paying the left-hander a $1.5 million buyout.

The Dodgers have $196.715 million committed to 19 players in 2015, plus another estimated $43.5 million to players to longer on the team.
