the Aces on Tuesday

The details on the new deal signed by Cowboys guard Zack Martin have made their way to PFT. And now they’re making their way to you.

First [url=http://www.chicagobearsteamonline.com/mike-glennon-jersey]http://www.chicagobearsteamonline.com/mike-glennon-jersey[/url] , the breakdown. Then, the #analysis.

  1. Signing bonus: $20 million.

  2. Base salary for 2018: $2 million, fully guaranteed.

  3. Base salary for 2019: $10 million, fully guaranteed.

  4. Base salary for 2020: $11 million. Of that amount, $8 million is guaranteed for injury only at signing. On the fifth day of the 2019 league year, if becomes fully guaranteed.

  5. Base salary for 2021: $11 million.

  6. Base salary for 2022: $11.841 million.

  7. Base salary for 2023: $13.5 million.

  8. Roster bonus due on fifth day of 2024 league year: $1 million.

  9. Base salary for 2024: $13 million.

  10. Workout de-escalator (2019-24): $500,000 per year.

So it’s a six-year, $84 million extension, giving the contract a new-money value of $14 million. That’s more than the $13.3 million average given by the Jaguars to guard Andrew Norwell earlier this year.

And even with an apples-to-apples comparison based on value at signing, the seven-year [url=http://www.washingtonredskinsteamonline.com/rob-kelley-jersey]http://www.washingtonredskinsteamonline.com/rob-kelley-jersey[/url] , $93.341 million deal (Martin was due to make $9.341 million this year) has an annual average of $13.33 million.

The cash flow over the first three years puts Martin at the top of the stack for all guards, with $22 million in the first year, $32 million through two years, and $43 million over three.

As a practical matter, the deal has $40 million fully guaranteed at signing, because the only way to avoid the final $8 million would be to cut him before March 2019, making it a one-year, $32 million contract.

And, yes, the deal commits Martin for seven years. But that’s what the Cowboys do with their offensive lineman. Per a source with knowledge of the situation [url=http://www.dallascowboysteamonline.com/chuck-howley-jersey]Chuck Howley Jersey[/url] , the Cowboys actually wanted to get a commitment beyond 2024.

The St. Louis Cardinals left Arizona feeling a little bit better about themselves, thanks to a late-inning surge by the offense and another strong outing from Miles Mikolas.

The Cardinals scored seven times in the seventh and eighth innings to beat Arizona 8-4 on Wednesday night. After coming to town on a four-game losing streak and off a three-game sweep at the hands of Atlanta, St. Louis took two of three from the first-place Diamondbacks.

Yadier Molina’s three-run homer on the first pitch from reliever Fernando Salas highlighted a five-run Cardinals seventh inning after Arizona had nursed a 2-1 lead through six in front of a sellout crowd of 44,072.

”Had some big hits today,” St. Louis manager Mike Matheny said. ”It allows those big five-run innings to happen. Wear the pitcher down, wear the defense down. Then you have Yadi come in and do something special on the back end.”

Tommy Pham drove in three Cardinals runs with a double and two singles. Matt Carpenter doubled twice and singled with one RBI.

”Carp kind of set the tone. He got on base a lot,” Pham said. ”I think we had good at-bats. Even when the results weren’t there, we made guys throw pitches. That’s key. If a guy is taking four or five plus pitches to get outs, that means you are grinding as a hitter. When you put that together as a team, it wears out pitching staffs.”

The Diamondbacks dropped to 1-5 on their homestand and lead the surging Los Angeles Dodgers by just a half-game in the NL West.

Mikolas (9-3) gave up two runs and seven hits [url=http://www.washingtonredskinsteamonline.com/john-riggins-jersey]John Riggins Jersey[/url] , walked four and struck out three.

Arizona reliever Yoshihisa Hirano (2-1) had his franchise-record streak of 26 games without allowing a run end when Yairo Munoz homered to lead off the seventh. Hirano gave up four runs, one earned, on three hits in two-thirds of an inning for his first loss since coming to the major leagues from Japan this season.

”Yoshi’s human,” Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said. ”That’s what it means, right? And he’s absolutely spoiled us. He’s been a slam-dunk reliever and he made a really tough game look easy for a long time.”

After Munoz’s homer, shortstop Ketel Marte booted pinch-hitter Tyler O’Neill’s grounder for an error. With one out and O’Neill on second, Pham singled to center to put the Cardinals up 3-2. Center fielder Jarrod Dyson left the game with discomfort in his right groin area, Lovullo said.

Salas relieved Hirano and gave up the big hit to Molina, who homered twice in the series.

”It was like two totally different games,” Lovullo said. ”The first six innings were exactly the way you’d like to see guys go out and execute and do their job [url=http://www.buffalobillsteamonline.com/andre-holmes-jersey]Andre Holmes Jersey[/url] , and then the final three innings unfortunately we couldn’t execute in a lot of key areas.”

HARD-LUCK LEFTY

Arizona starter Patrick Corbin allowed one run and six hits in six innings, his third straight strong outing without a decision. He’s given up two runs in 19 innings during those three starts.

TRAINER’S ROOM

Cardinals: Paul DeJong (broken left hand) homered and doubled and played shortstop all nine innings Tuesday night in his fourth rehab game for Triple-A Memphis. Matheny said DeJong would not be activated Thursday in San Francisco but could be at some time during the four-game series.

Diamondbacks: Right-handed reliever Randall Delgado (left oblique strain) was scheduled to make another rehab appearance for Triple-A Reno and is expected to be activated Thursday, the end of his rehab assignment. … OF Steven Souza Jr. (strained right pectoral) had Wednesday off in his rehab assignment with Reno after homering twice for the Aces on Tuesday night. Souza has three homers in his last two rehab games.

UP NEXT

Cardinals: Head to San Francisco for four games against the Giants. RHP Luke Weaver (4-7, 5.16 ERA) starts for St. Louis in Thursday night’s opener. Johnny Cueto (3-0, 0.84) comes off the disabled list to pitch for the Giants.

Diamondbacks: RHP Shelby Miller (0-2, 11.42), following two rough starts in his return from Tommy John surgery, takes the mound Thursday night in the opener of a four-game home series against San Diego. LHP Eric Lauer (3-5, 5.08) goes for the Padres.
