MIAMI (AP) - Left-hander Jeff Locke has signed his $3,025,000, one-year deal with the Miami Marlins.

The team also announced contracts with catcher A.J. Ellis and right-hander Dustin McGowan on Monday. The deals were reached last week at the winter meetings.

Locke’s deal includes award bonuses ranging from $25,000 for making the All-Star Game to $100,000 for being chosen World Series most valuable player.

Ellis signed a $2.5 million, one-year contract to back up J.T. Realmuto, and McGowan signed a $1.75 million, one-year deal to remain with Miami. Their agreements include award bonuses similar to Locke’s.
