The Detroit Tigers have announced that they have agreed to a five-year contract extension with starting pitcher and team ace Justin Verlander.

Verlander has two years remaining on the five-year, $79.5 million contract he signed after the 2009 season. He will make $20 million in each of those seasons.  Add those two seasons, with the reported terms of the extension, including the option, and Verlander would be baseball’s first $200 million pitcher.  This deal now exceeds the $175 Million dollar extension tendered to Seatle Mariners ace Felix Hernandez.
