Under terms of the agreement, Buehrle will be paid $14 million for each of the next four seasons.
The contract includes an escalator clause that could make the deal worth $75 million over five years if he is traded. From the AP:
He has a no-trade provision in the first season. If he is traded during a window in the second or third seasons, the annual salary goes to $15 million that year and a fifth season is added, also at $15 million.
