Chris Capuano Could Earn Over $4.5 Million
Adam Rubin of ESPN New York has the breakdown of Chris Capuano’s contract incentives that could increase the value of the $1.5 million dollar guaranteed deal to over $4.5 million dollars. Here goes:
$1,500,000 base salary. Plus:
$125,000 for 15 games started
$150,000 for 20 games started
$75,000 for each game started from 21 through 31
$100,000 for 32 games started
$100,000 for 20 relief appearances
$100,000 for 30 relief apperances
$100,000 for 40 relief appearances
$100,000 for 50 relief appearances
$100,000 for 60 relief appearances
(A maximum of $1.2 million may be earned for games started and relief appearance bonus combined.)
$50,000 for 90 innings pitched
$100,000 for 100 innings pitched
$100,000 for 110 innings pitched
$100,000 for 120 innings pitched
$100,000 for 130 innings pitched
$125,000 for 140 innings pitched
$175,000 for 150 innings pitched
$175,000 for 160 innings pitched
$200,000 for 170 innings pitched
$200,000 for 180 innings pitched
$225,000 for 190 innings pitched
$250,000 for 200 innings pitched
Plus: $50,000 for All Star; $150,000 for Comeback Player of the Year.
The deal could be worth $4.5 million or more if Capuano pitches 200 innings and makes 32 starts.
Obviously, the hope would be that Capuano can pull it off and earn those incentives because it would mean the Mets took a gamble and it paid off.
