Reliever Jake Diekman can earn $500,000 annuall 3 months, 1 week ago #667

SURPRISE Glenn Robinson Jersey , Ariz. (AP) —y in performance bonuses for appearances and another $500,000 for games finished as part of his one-year contract with the Kansas City Royals.The deal announced last week that guarantees $2.75 million and includes a mutual option for 2020 plus bonuses that could make agreement worth $10 million over two seasons.He gets a $2.25 million salary this year, and the contract has a $5.75 million mutual option with a $500,000 buyout.He would get $75,000 each for 35, 40, 45 and 50 games pitched, and $100 Manny Pina Jersey ,000 apiece for 55 and 60.Diekman would earn $50,000 each for 15, 20 and 25 games finished, $75,000 apiece for 30 and 35, and $100,000 each for 40 and 45.The 32-year-old Diekman spent last season with the Texas Rangers and Arizona Diamondbacks, making 71 appearances with a career-worst 4.73 ERA. But he’s shown shutdown ability during a seven-year career that included a stop in Philadelphia, going 14-15 with a 3.75 ERA. SCOTTSDALE http://www.brewersfanproshop.com/authentic-orlando-arcia-jersey , Ariz. (AP) — Trevor Story saw the Colorado Rockies‘ lineup and thought ahead to the regular season.“It gives you a little excitement, maybe a little preview,” the All-Star shortstop said after hitting a home run and getting a base hit in three at-bats Wednesday against the Arizona Diamondbacks.“I think we’re getting there, we feel like we’re heading in the right direction,” he said.Story is coming off the best of his three big-league seasons after hitting 37 homers and stealing 27 bases in 2018. He made his first All-Star appearance and homered in that game as well.He was also instrumental in helping the Rockies to the wild card and a berth in the National League Division Series, their first since 2009.For now, manager Bud Black has moved Nolan Arenado to the No. 2 spot in the batting order, behind Charlie Blackmon. Free-agent addition Daniel Murphy slots in between Arenado and Story, with outfielders David Dahl and Ian Desmond behind the shortstop.With Kyle Freeland also on the mound and taking his turn at the plate Wednesday http://www.brewersfanproshop.com/authentic-orlando-arcia-jersey , it could be the lineup that takes the field in the opener March 28 at Miami. New second baseman Ryan McMahon and veteran catcher Chris Iannetta also started.If Story — fully healthy after right elbow pain threatened to sideline him late last season — can duplicate his 2018 success, the Rockies may be even more dangerous than last season’s 91-72 squad.“Trevor’s doing well. He’s locked in,” manager Bud Black said. “He’s in a good spot.”For the first time, Story is coming into a season with health and confidence. His strong 2016 rookie year ended early with a right thumb injury.“That experience helps me a lot,” Story said of last season. “At this point it’s about how I’m attacking pitchers, and realizing how they’re attacking me, and creating a good plan.”Story struggled at the plate in 2017, striking out an NL-high 191 times and batting just .239.“I want to strike out less,” said Story Domingo Santana Jersey , who still struck out 162 times a year ago.“There’s always places to get better in this game,” he said. “Make more adjustments and I want to keep getting better on defense.”The Diamondbacks’ Nick Ahmed won the Gold Glove for NL shortstops last year. But with Arenado and his six awards to Story’s immediate right, he doesn’t have to look far to see the possibilities.“It’s inspiring for sure. I see the work those guys have put in and it’s something I want to win,” Story said.
