MESA, Ariz. (AP) — Oakland left-hander Scott Alexander would earn $300,000 in performance bonuses if he pitches in 60 games this season.

The 34-year-old reliever agreed to Feb. 14 to a $2.25 million, one-year contract.

His deal calls for $50,000 each for 35, 40, 45 and 50 games, and $100,000 for 60.

Alexander would get a $200,000 assignment bonus each time he is traded.

Alexander went 7-3 with a 4.66 ERA and one save for San Francisco last season, making eight starts among 55 appearances. He is 19-12 with a 3.29 ERA and 10 saves in 13 starts and 270 relief appearances over nine seasons with Kansas City (2015-17), the Los Angeles Dodgers (2018-21) and the Giants (2022-23).
