NEW YORK -- The Mets are not paying a large sum for Daisuke Matsuzaka. In fact, they're paying only a prorated portion of the $490,000 major league minimum, with no bonuses, according to a major league source.

Because Matsuzaka will only be with the Mets for 38 days out of a 183-day season, he should only earn 20.8 percent of the major league minimum.

So the precise cost should be: $101,748.63.
Adam Rubin has covered the Mets since 2003. He's a graduate of Mepham High School on Long Island and the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. He joined ESPNNewYork after spending 10 years at the New York Daily News.
