Contract details: Casilla, Pearce Teagarden and Reynolds w/ the Indians
The Orioles are expected to make Nate McLouth’s one-year contract official later today, with the outfielder flying home after taking a physical in Baltimore. In the meantime, here are some contract details for currently signed players…
To jog your memory, the O’s avoided arbitration with a trio of players in Alexi Casilla, Steve Pearce and Taylor Teagarden and non-tendered Mark Reynolds a few hours short of the Nov. 30 deadline. Reynolds recently signed a one-year deal with the Cleveland Indians and his details are below, along with the other three.
Casilla, claimed off waivers from the Minnesota Twins, will make $1.7 million in 2013, with a club option for 2014 for $3 million or a $200,000 buyout. Pearce, who was also claimed off waivers, agreed to a one-year deal worth $700,000. Teagarden, the Orioles’ backup to catcher Matt Wieters, agreed to a one-year deal worth $650,000 for 2013, plus (for each on the active roster): $12,500 for 140 days; $12,500 for 168 days.
Reynolds signed for $6 million with incentives that could escalate up to $7.5. Those bonuses are as follows: $250,000 for 400 plate appearances, $250,000 for 450 PAs, $250,000 for 500 PA, $250,000 for 550 PA, $250,000 for 575 PA and $250,000 for 600 P. Plus: $100,000 for MVP ($75,000-2nd thru 3rd; $50,000-4th thru 5th); $50,000 for All Star; $50,000 for Gold Glove; $50,000 for Silver Slugger; $50,000 for World Series MVP; $25,000 for League Championship Series MVP.
