Details on Howry’s contract

Tracked down some additional details on reliever Bobby Howry’s contract with the D-backs:

— The right-hander will make $2 million and the D-backs hold an option for 2011 at $3 million with a $250,000 buyout. However, if Howry is dealt in 2010 and the option is excercised, Howry can void the option and the team would not owe him the $250,000 buyout.

— In addition, if Howry finishes 40 games in 2010 the option becomes a mutual option and the buyout will be paid if either side declines the option year.

— The D-backs also agreed not to offer Howry salary arbitration if he is a Type A free agent.

Steve, “finishes 40 games” means?? He’s not a closer.
