PITTSBURGH (AP) South Korean infielder Jung Ho Kang can earn $750,000 annually in performance bonuses based on plate appearances as part of his $11 million, four-year contract with the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Kang gets $2.5 million in each of the first two seasons of the deal, which was announced Friday, and his salary rises to $2.75 million in 2017 and $3 million in 2018. The Pirates have a $5.5 million team option for 2019 with a $250,000 buyout.

The 29-year-old would earn $75,000 for 475 plate appearances; $100,000 each for 500, 525 and 550; $175,000 for 575; and $200,000 for 600.
