As previously reported last night, and subsequently announced this morning, the Milwaukee Brewers have signed free agent corner infielder Mark Reynolds.
The contract is technically a minor-league deal with an official invitation to big league camp at Maryvale (incidentally less than a month from now).
Jon Heyman of CBS Sports came through with the contract value this morning in a tweet:
Mark Reynolds gets $2M salary plus 500K performance bonuses assuming in majors. Near lock to make brewers, may start at 1B.

It says Reynolds will earn $2 million in base salary with an additional $500 thousand available to earn based on incentives. That’s contingent, of course, on Reynolds being in the majors.
A closer look at Reynolds by me will come during my “Brewers By the (Jersey) Numbers” series.
