Giants Cy Young pitcher Tim Lincecum, who signed for $650,000, and White Sox outfielder Carlos Quentin, who signed for $550,000, are among several top young players who aren't yet eligible for salary arbitration were inked Wednesday to deals.

Angels pitcher Joe Saunders signed for $475,000, Cubs reliever Carlos Marmol for $575,000, White Sox pitcher Gavin Floyd for $520,000 and Cubs infielder Ryan Theriot for $500,000. All of those players signed split contracts, so in the unlikely event they are demoted during the season, they will be paid at a lower rate. In all six cases, that rate is somewhere between $240,000 and $260,000.
