Jackson needs 55 games finished in 2024 for full escalator

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Luke Jackson must have 55 games finished in 2024 to trigger the full $3.5 million escalator for 2025 in his $11.5 million, two-year contract with the Giants, a deal that could be worth $20 million over three seasons. The 31-year-old right-hander missed last season after Tommy John surgery. He gets a $3 million salary next year and $6.5 million in 2024, and the Giants have a $7 million option for 2025 with a $2 million buyout. Jackson’s 2025 base salary would increase by $500,000 each for 35, 40 and 45 games finished, and $750,000 apiece for 50 and 55.
