CLEVELAND (AP) - Pitcher Tommy Hunter has a $2 million base salary in his one-year contract with the Cleveland Indians.

Hunter can earn an additional $1 million in performance bonuses as part of Friday’s agreement based on pitching appearances: $100,000 each for 25 and 30, and $200,000 apiece for 35, 40, 45 and 50.

A 29-year-old right-hander, Hunter was 4-2 with a 4.18 ERA in 58 relief appearances for Baltimore and the Chicago Cubs, who acquired him on July 31 for outfielder Junior Lake.

Primarily a starter from 2008-12, Hunter has pitched out of the bullpen for the past three seasons. He has a 46-33 career record with a 4.31 ERA in 75 starts and 209 relief appearances for Texas (2008-11), Baltimore (2011-15) and the Cubs.
