Details Emerge On Colorado Rockies Trade Of Miguel Olivo To Toronto Blue Jays

According to Ken Rosenthal and Tracy Ringolsby, the Blue Jays could send money back to the Rockies depending on what the team decides to do with Miguel Olivo:

They will pay the Rockies $25,000 if they decline to offer Olivo arbitration, a source said. If they re-sign Olivo or offer him arbitration, they will send the Rockies a player to be named instead of the money.

The Rockies already received salary relief in the trade by not having to decline Olivo’s option and paying him $500,000. An additional $25,000 is not all that much so receiving a player in return may be the preferred option.
