Paxton is under team control until 2021. His deal is reportedly worth $4.9 million, according to Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times.

Phelps is set to earn $5.5 million, per FanRag’s Robert Murray.

Zunino, whose deal was first reported Thursday, will make $2.975 million, according to ESPN.com’s Jerry Crasnick.
