During the physical, the Mets had concerns over Henry Blanco’s right shoulder. For that, they restructured the deal, which now has a base salary of $750,000, according to Ken Davidoff.
The deal, with new incentives, could be worth as much as $2,225,000.
Davidoff notes that he can quickly earn an additional $700K from “roster bonuses” (read: staying healthy). Breaking it down even further, he earns $5,000 each day on the roster up to 80 days, $4,500 for days 81-135 and $3,500 for days 136-150.
The rest of the incentives vary from $50,000 for winning the Most Valuable Player award to $50,000 for World Series MVP to $25,000 for winning a Gold Glove. For the full list, use your one Newsday click to read Davidoff’s blog.
