Cleveland Signs Austin Jackson - Can Opt-Out Before Opening Day

Recommended Posts

$1.5 million plus an additional $4 million in incentives possible.  A bit less expensive than I anticipated.  Possibly worth keeping an eye on in the event he opts out.  RH bat and good glove that can play all 3 OF spots seems to fit the need the Orioles have for that last roster spot pretty well.

Interesting structure to that deal.   It's a minor league deal but with a pretty hefty base salary, heavy incentives, and as you note, he can opt out if not on the OD roster.   It will be interesting to see how it plays out.

I bet Pagan could now be had for 1 year and 4 million.  Not sure I'd do that but it'd be interesting to see how much lower the market could drop.

So if I'm Jackson, I'm hoping to have a strong ST and that a starting CF somewhere gets hurt.  Were Jones to get hurt in ST and knocked out for the season, I would definitely offer Jackson a guaranteed deal around 1/6 if he wasn't a complete bust in ST.
