Riske signs with Brewers

New, 20 comments

Per the JS Blogs:

I know some folks were beginning to question whether the Brewers' deal with free agent reliever David Riske actually was going to happen but it became official this morning when the sides officially agreed to a three-year deal that guarantees him $13 million.

The 31-year-old right-hander has incentives in the deal, many based on whether he becomes the closer, that could take it as high as $20 million over the three years. There also is a club option for a fourth year at approximately $4.75 million, depending on escalators.

3 years, $13 million?  That sounds awfully familiar.
