BALTIMORE -- Andy Pettitte will be guaranteed his full $2.5 million salary from the Yankees on Thursday, The Associated Press reported, citing details of the left-hander's contract.
Pettitte was placed on the Major League roster on Sunday and will earn a prorated share of a $2 million base salary, worth $1,573,770, after missing the first 39 days of the season.
The lefty's contract calls for two roster bonuses: $500,000 for five days and $250,000 for 10 days. It also calls for performance bonuses of $500,000 for one start and $250,000 each for two and three starts.
However, the contract says Pettitte's total of base salary and earned bonuses cannot exceed $2.5 million.
