Contracts

Texas signed pitcher RYAN WING to a one-year contract for $316,000. UT MARK DEROSA signed a one-year deal for $500,000 plus incentives.

Wing's deal will be pro-rated for time spent on the ML roster. DeRosa is an NRI; his deal is contingent upon making the team. In addition to the base salary, he can earn $20,000 for reaching 200 plate appearances and $20,000 for each additional 25 PAs up to 425. So, if Hank Blalock retires in June, DeRosa might earn a full $700,000.

The Fort Worth Star Telegram also shed light on Pedro Astacio's complicated incentives:

$800,000 base
+50,000 for reaching 80 innings
+50,000 for each additional 10 innings up to 150
+100,000 for each additional ten innings from 160 to 210
+8,333 for each start of 10 through 18
+16,667 for each start of 19-24
+25,000 for each start of 25-27
+33,333 for each start of 28-33
+75,000 for everry 30 days on active roster
+ up to 350,000 in award bonuses

There will be a quiz tomorrow.
