Left-hander Tyler Anderson has a $1,775,000 salary as part of his contract with the San Francisco Giants and would earn $2,625,000 if he is healthy for most of the season and pitches 130 or more innings. Anderson’s deal, announced Tuesday, includes $500,000 in roster bonuses and $350,000 in performance bonuses. He would get $125,000 each for 60, 90, 120 and 150 days on the active roster, $75,000 each for 85 and 100 innings, and $100,000 apiece for 115 and 130 innings.

The rumors are true: Madison Bumgarner has thrown a lot of innings. Figuring out how much gas the longtime San Francisco Giant has left in the tank is certainly going to be top of mind for the White Sox after they missed out on Zack Wheeler, who took less money than the South Siders were offering to go play for the Philadelphia Phillies. Bumgarner wasn’t the same pitcher in the last three seasons as the one he was from 2013 to 2016, when he finished in the top 10 in NL Cy Young voting four years in a row.

The Giants have quietly spent most of the past month putting a staff together, one they expect to announce in the coming days. One new addition won’t be working in a traditional dugout role, but still is expected to make a huge impact on the next generation of Giants pitchers. Brian Bannister, a former big leaguer who spent the previous five seasons with the Red Sox, will join the Giants as director of pitching, NBC Sports Bay Area has learned.

Wheeler’s deal with Philadelphia is reportedly for five years. Wheeler is expected to make $118 million, according to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic.
