Colorado Rockies 1B Justin Morneau signed a two-year, $12.5-million deal that breaks down to a $5 million salary in 2014, $6.75 million in 2015 and a $9 million mutual option for 2016. The option can be voided with a $750,000 buyout. Morneau also can make an additional $500,000 this season if he reaches 550 at-bats and finishes the season on the active 25-man roster. There are also boosts for finishing in the top-10 in the MVP voting and standard postseason bonuses. Morneau is no hurry to be traded either. He must be paid a $375,000 assignment bonus if dealt.
