Trevor Cahill finalizes $1.5 million deal to join Pittsburgh Pirates

Right-hander Trevor Cahill and the Pittsburgh Pirates finalized a $1.5 million, one-year contract on Friday, a deal that allows him to earn an additional $1 million in performance bonuses for innings.

Cahill could earn $100,000 for 75 innings, $150,000 for 100, $200,000 for 125, $250,000 for 150 and $300,000 for 175.

The 33-year-old was 1-2 with a 3.24 ERA in six starts and five relief appearances for San Francisco last season. He struck out 31 and walked 14 in 24 innings, holding opponents to a career-low .184 batting average. After moving to the bullpen, he pitched five shutout innings in five games.

He earned $519,624 in prorated pay from a $2 million salary.

Pirates have been after Cahill for at least five years - they're finally the last two singles at the dance.

Trevor Cahill is the new Jamey Wright. A guy I'm constantly surprised is still in the big leagues, and would have figured that there would be large gaps in between big league stints, but has been there the whole time.
