Details on Rays deal with Shawn Tolleson

24

January

Though overshadowed by the Logan Forsythe-Jose DeLeon trade, the Rays completion of the signing of RHP Shawn Tolleson is a low-cost gamble that could pay off big if he can regain his 2015 form, when he saved 35 games for Texas. Over 2014-15, Tolleson posted a 2.88 ERA while working 137 games, striking out 145 in 144 innings.

The Rays will pay Tolleson a $1-million salary, with the potential for another $1.15 in incentives. Here is a breakdown, terms obtained by the Tampa Bay Times:

35 games: $50,000
40: $75,000
45: $75,000
50: $100,000
55: $150,000
60: $200,000
65: $250,000
70: $250,000
