Quick hit: Roberts’ deal is official

So it’s official, Brian Roberts is a New York Yankee, he’s making $2MM in 2014 and he will be taking Alex Rodriguez‘s spot on the 40-man roster.

Roberts, who had spent his entire career with the Baltimore Orioles, is as unlucky with injuries as I am with love. Poor guy. He played in 77 games last season which was his highest total since he played 159 games in 2009. Since then he’s played in 59, 39 and a low of 17 in 2012. Last year, he batted .249/.312/.392/.704 in those 77 games with eight home runs and 39 RBI.

UPDATE: 11:15 A.M.

Per Joel Sherman, Roberts’ bonuses: $175G for 250pa, 300pa; $250G for 350pa, 400 pa. $300G for 450pa, 500pa; $350G for 550pa $400G for 600pa, 650 pa.

What do you think the more realistic over/under is on Roberts’ PAs? Leave your answer in the comments.
