08:28 AM ET 01.27 | Giants ace Tim Lincecum signed a two-year deal Tuesday that will reportedly pay him $40.5 million, but he could earn quite a bit more over that span. His performance-based incentives are as follows: Lincecum would earn an additional $500,000 for winning his third Cy Young, $250,000 for second place, $100,000 for third, $75,000 for fourth and $50,000 for fifth. If he wins the Cy Young in 2012, the bonus for winning again in 2013 would increase to $1 million. Lincecum also would make $250,000 for being voted NL MVP, $150,000 for being the runner-up, $100,000 for third, $75,000 for fourth and $50,000 for fifth. He would receive a $100,000 bonus if picked to the All-Star game and $50,000 for a Gold Glove.
