Per a source with knowledge of the deal with the Pirates, there is $30.9375 million left on A.J. Burnett's $82.5 million contract. The Yankees pay their contracts year-round so they have already eaten a chunk out of this year's salary. It has been previously reported that Burnett had $33 million left on his deal.

The Yankees will pay Burnett an additional $9.4375 million this year, while the Bucs will pick up five million. Next year, the Pirates will pay $8 million, while the Yankees will send $8.5 million to Burnett.
