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.
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.
