¤ The Commissioner's Office, and the MLBPA have signed off on provisions within Rodriguez's contract that provide for special nongaurenteed bonuses, based upon homerun milestones. Under the agreement, Rodriguez will receive $6 million when he reaches each of five milestones: the career home run totals of Willie Mays (660), Babe Ruth (714), Henry Aaron (755) and Barry Bonds (762), and when he breaks the record.

§ Riske 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.

Å Jones will receive a $12.2 million signing bonus, of which $5.1 million is payable next year, $2.1 million in 2009 and $5 million in 2010. He well get salaries of $9 million next year and $15 million in 2009. He also will receive a no-trade clause.

Guillen will serve a 15-game suspension at the start of the 2008 season (pending arbitration outcome) as part of an investigation into purchasing PEDs.

ψ Kobayashi's deal includes a $3.25 million club option for 2010 with a $250,000 buyout.

Ø Phillips refused the New York Yankees' outright assignment to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on 12/7/07 and became a free agent.

ƒ Pettitte opted out of contract with Yankees, but has agreed to return in 2008 based on the prior offer from the Yankees.

£ Gagne declined arbitration with the Red Sox on 12/08/09

ζ Hawkins made $3.25 million and Colorado declined a $3.75 million option, choosing to pay a $250,000 buyout.
