Angels Sign Anthony Ortega To Split Contract

Pitcher Anthony Ortega, already on the Angels' 40-man roster, signed a split contract today, possibly indicating the Angels are thinking of using him as a fourth or fifth starter if he does well in spring training.
Angels pitcher Anthony Ortega today signed a "split contract" -- one salary if you play in the major leagues, another if you play in the minor leagues.

How does that translate into dollars? If Ortega plays in Anaheim this year, he'll make $400,000 --minimum wage in the majors. If he plays in the minors, he'll make $32,000. That's a typical contract for a prospect that has yet to play in the majors.

Hey - I really like your blog and you keep it updated nicely. Would you consider adding mine to your list of blogs? www.sfdodgerfan.com
Another Dodger blog, but based on life as a Dodger fan living up North. I grew up in L.A. and I'm a Dodger fan with the Angels a close second. Mike Sciosca was my favorite player, so I can't help but still root for him.
