    I'm fairly confident that's correct. ML contracts are 100% guaranteed, so as long as you are in the majors for any part of the duration of the contract, you get it all. At least that's my understanding of it.

    It said it was guaranteed. As LRCW indicated, there are a ton of goofy contract rules that get real confusing real quick.

    Thought they purchased your contract when you are not on the 40 man. A guy can play in the minors and not be on the 40 man roster. When a team wants to call that person up, they much purchase his contract and add him to the 40 man roster by either removing someone via waiver or putting someone who is on the 40 man roster on the 60 day DL.
