DEC. 18: Reynolds can earn up to $800K of incentives, tweets Heyman. He will earn an additional $200K for reaching 250, 350, 450 and 550 plate appearances.
DEC. 11: The Cardinals have announced the signing of corner infielder Mark Reynolds. The veteran slugger will get a $2MM guarantee on the one-year contract and he can earn more through playing time incentives, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports on Twitter. News of the agreement between Reynolds and the Cards was first reported by Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com (Twitter link).
Reynolds, 31, hit .196/.287/.394 with 22 homers last season. While the overall batting line was not his finest (in fact, his .681 OPS was a career low), he still gave the Brewers a good deal of power at the plate. On top of that, the advanced metrics show that he turned in a stronger season defensively than he has in years past, as Jeff Sullivan of Fangraphs recently noted. According to Baseball Reference, Reynolds has earned roughly $22.5MM over the course of his career to date.
