Detail On Gio Gonzalez’s Option Years

The second option on Gio Gonzalez's new contract with the Nationals is a vesting one, MLBTR has learned.  If the Nationals exercise their $12MM club option for 2017, an option for '18 at the same salary will vest if Gonzalez pitches 180 innings in '17.

Yesterday, Mark Zuckerman of CSNWashington.com and Nats Insider tweeted the year-by-year salary breakdown of Gonzalez's five-year, $42MM deal.  The contract is the largest ever for a starting pitcher with less than three years of service time.
