Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times reports that Zack Greinke's contract with the Dodgers could be worth up to $158 million if he hits all of his incentives.

All of the incentives aren't realistically attainable, though, as Greinke would have to win six Cy Young Awards and be traded. Other incentives are very much a possibility, as his base salary will increase by $1 million the following season if he wins the Cy Young and by $500,000 if he finishes in the top-5. His salary for 2018 will increase by $2 million if he pitches 1,000 innings in his first five years of the contract.
