GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Brandon Beachy's contract with the Dodgers is worth $2.75 million guaranteed and he can earn up to $8.75 million over two years if his option is exercised and he reaches all of his incentives.

Beachy has a base salary of $2.75 million for 2015, plus a club option for 2016 worth $3 million.

He has four years, 14 days of service time and all three option years remaining. Beachy has spent most of the last 2½ seasons on the disabled list with a pair of Tommy John surgeries.

"It was obviously important to us to have the team control. He has four years of service so he would have probably been under team control in 2016 anyway," general manager Farhan Zaidi said, "but I think it gave him some comfort knowing the organization was making a long-term investment in him, having the same incentives to have him come back rather than just 'Let's see what he can do in the second half.' We're aligned in our incentives to get him back at 100 percent, and have him not just for 2015 but 2016."

If Beachy pitches at least 10 innings in 2015, he gets a $250,000 buyout attached to his 2016 option.

In addition, his 2016 salary can increase from $3 million to $6 million based on the number of starts he makes this year. Beachy gets $500,000 added for each of one, five, 10, 15, 18 and 21 starts.

If his 2016 option is exercised, Beachy can also earn $2 million in bonuses, per the Associated Press: $500,000 for each of 20 and 25 games, and $1 million for 30 games.

The Dodgers have $218.1 million committed to 25 players in 2015, plus another $43.5 million in dead money paid to players no longer in the organization.
