Includes max bonuses and salary, per sources.

Kind of interesting to see this after that last story.

$3.775M AAV.

So if he gets called up to the big leagues, that’s his cap hit?

If he gets called up wink 

Well the performance bonus portion counts against the cap when it’s earned, and then teams can go over the cap by some percentage (sorry, don’t recall and feeling a bit lazy) but any overage applies against the following year’s cap.
