ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) Avisail Garcia earn up to $6 million as part of his one-year contract with the Tampa Bay Rays.
The team announced the deal Friday, an agreement that guarantees $3.5 million this season.
He can earn $250,000 each for 350, 400, 450, 500, 550 and 600 plate appearances, and $1 million for 650.
Garcia, coming off arthroscopic surgery on his right knee, hit a career-high 19 home runs last season but slumped to .236 with 49 RBIs in 93 games after batting a career-best .330 with 18 homers and 80 RBIs in 136 games in 2017, when he was an All-Star.
The 27-year-old has a .271 career big league average with 76 home runs and 302 RBIs on seven seasons with the White Sox and Detroit Tigers.
