NEW YORK (AP) — Matt Harvey may not throw a single pitch this season, but he’s already earned $60,000 in bonuses.

The contract of the injured New York Mets star contains unusual provisions that reward him for 2013 accomplishments.

Harvey has earned a $10,000 bonus for making last year’s All-Star team and $50,000 for finishing tied for fourth in NL Cy Young Award voting.

He gets a salary of $546,625 while on the major league roster this year under the one-year deal announced Monday and is paid at an annual rate of $299,250 if on option to the minors.

Recovering from elbow ligament-replacement surgery on Oct. 22, Harvey gets paid at the big league rate while on the disabled list or during a minor league injury rehabilitation assignment.

He may not return to the mound for the Mets until 2015, and he becomes eligible for arbitration after the 2015 season.
