2012 (pre-arb 2) $500K
2013 (pre-arb 2) $750K
2014 (arb-1) $2M
2015 (arb-2) $3.5M
2016 (arb-3) $5M
2017 (FA1) $9M

That would be $20.75M over 6 years.

From now til arb he would only make around $1mill. I would think a nice discount is in order. Considering his leg,age(possibly), and lack of power as of yet problems.
