Here is how it looks:
2011: $20 million
2012: $20 million
2013: $20 million
Halladay has a $20 million vesting option in 2014. The option automatically vests if (A) he throws a combined 415 innings in 2012-13; (B) he throws 225 innings in 2013; and (C) he is not on the disabled list at the end of the 2013 season. Halladay has thrown more than 225 innings in each of the previous three seasons, and six times in the last eight seasons he has thrown at least 220 innings. In other words, the option vests if Halladay stays healthy and as productive as he has been. The Phillies certainly won’t mind paying Halladay another $20 million if he continues his dominance at 36.
Halladay receives a $100,000 bonus for winning MVP ($75,000 for second and $50,000 for third); a $100,000 bonus for winning Cy Young ($75,000 for second and $50,000 for third); a $100,000 bonus for winning World Series MVP honors; a $50,000 bonus for winning a Gold Glove; a $50,000 bonus for winning a Silver Slugger; and a $50,000 bonus for making the All-Star team.
Halladay also has a no-trade provision in his contract, although it’s unclear how many teams it includes.
