While it is uncertain how much Dickson signed for, a report from the Journal Times does make mention of Rottino's deal. A snip:
The 32-year-old Rottino signed a one-year contract Friday with the Orix Buffaloes, a Nippon Professional team in the Pacific League. The contract guarantees him $350,000 with the potential of another $100,000 in incentives.
Rottino is scheduled to meet with representatives of the Buffaloes Wednesday in Milwaukee. He plans to leave Jan. 21 for spring training in Osaka, Japan.
