Troy E. Renck of the Denver Post has details on the newly signed contracts for A’s infielders Orlando Cabrera and Nomar Garciaparra.
Cabrera has a $4MM base salary, and he’ll receive a $250K bonus if traded. Interestingly, the A’s agreed not to offer him arbitration if he’s a Type A free agent after the season. Cabrera is not inclined to let draft pick compensation get in his way the next time around.
Garciaparra gets a $1MM base plus $150K if he gets 300 plate appearances. He can earn additional money for days spent on the 25-man roster.
