Player Notes
CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that Jason Motte's one-year, $4.5 million contract with the Cubs includes $2.5 million in potential incentives.

Advice: The deal appears to include incentives for games finished ($250,000 for 50-59 games finished) and appearances ($250,000 for 60 appearances, $250,000 for 65 appearances), which gives him a couple of different avenues depending on his role. The Cubs likely don't consider him a candidate for closer coming off a rough season, especially with some quality options already in-house, but things could change if his velocity bounces back to pre-Tommy John surgery level.

Cubs signed RHP Jason Motte to a one-year, $4.5 million contract.

Advice: The deal also contains $2.5 million worth of incentives for games finished. The Cubs plan to use Motte in a setup role, but he'll provide some insurance in case Hector Rondon struggles. Motte put up a 4.68 ERA and 1.52 WHIP in 29 appearances for the Cardinals in 2014, but the hope is that he'll be able to regain his past form as he further distances himself from Tommy John surgery.
