Chris Young's MRI was being further reviewed Monday to determine the extent of the trouble with his ailing right shoulder. If he does not make another start this season, the Mets will not be on the hook for beyond the $1.1 million base salary. Young's bonuses, which could have maxed out the deal at $4.5 million, did not begin kicking in until his 10th start and 70th inning pitched.

Young had made four starts and logged 24 innings so far.

Here's a review of the exact terms:

In addition to a $1.1 million base salary, Young can make an additional $1,525,000 based on starts 10 through 31, and $1,875,000 based on innings from 70 to 180.

That involves $125,000 for his 10th and 15th start, $150,000 for his 20th, $75,000 apiece for Nos. 21 through 25, and $125,000 each from Nos. 26 through 31. Young receives $125,000 for pitching 70 innings, $150,000 for 80 and each additional 10 innings through 150, $175,000 apiece for 160 and 170, and $200,000 for 180.
