Here are the precise terms of the contracts relievers Frank Francisco (two years, $12 million) and Jon Rauch (one year, $3.5 million) agreed to in December.

Francisco's contract is slightly backloaded, with $5.5 million owed in 2012 and $6.5 million in 2013. There are no performance incentives.

Rauch can earned $500,000 in performance bonuses in addition to his $3.5 million salary, all based on games finished.

He gets $50,000 apiece for finishing 30 and 35 games, $75,000 apiece for finishing 40 and 45 games, and $125,000 apiece for finishing 50 and 55 games.

Rauch's highest games-finished total came in 2008, when he had a combined 51 with the Washington Nationals and Arizona Diamondbacks while tallying 18 saves.

Francisco has been anointed as the closer by Terry Collins.
