Juan Pierre, Matt Belisle and Elvis Andrus recently agreed to new deals; here are details on their respective contracts:
- Pierre would earn $800K on the Major League roster and he could earn additional incentives based on plate appearances, Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com tweets. The outfielder signed a minor league deal with the Phillies last week.
- Belisle will earn $4.1MM in 2013 and his extension includes a mutual option worth $4.25MM for 2014, Troy Renck of the Denver Post reports. If Belisle accepts his half of the option, the Rockies can still decline for $250K. The deal includes $450K in incentives for games finished.
- Andrus gets a signing bonus of $750K, $2.375MM in 2012, $4.8MM in 2013, and $6.475MM in 2014, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News tweets.
Juan is the leadoff we never had in Rollins
That andrus deal is so so good.
Juan Pierre would do very well on that bench for the Phillies.
Juan Pierre is still alive?
It is amazing to me that he took this long to only sign for 800,000. It seems like there would be more interest in a player of his caliber. I’m not saying he is a Michael Bourne, but he certainly is no slouch.
Andrus will be paid more in bonus money than in his actual contract?? That’s pretty sly.
Am I crazy, or is that a steal for Juan Pierre? Seriously, the SB is way underrated.
