Pitcher Carlos Silva was paid $48 million four years ago. Fast forward four years and he can’t even get a guaranteed contract.

He had to settle for something far less. Silva has agreed to a minor league contract with the Boston Red Sox.

Silva will make a prorated share of $1 million if the Red Sox called him up from the majors at some point this season. Now, he will have to outshine former Major Leaguers at the Triple-A level with the Red Sox.

The Red Sox currently has Brandon Duckworth, Charlie Haeger, Will Inman, Doug Mathis, Tony Pena Jr., Chorye Spoone, Jesse Carlson, Rich Hill, and Justin Thomas at the Triple-A level.

He made seven starts within the Yankees minor league system with a 2.75 ERA.

He signed with the Seattle Mariners four years ago. After struggling, he was traded to the Chicago Cubs in a swap of high-priced disappointments for Milton Bradley.

He pitched in 113 innings for the Cubs in 2010, then was released early last season. He was 10-6 with a 4.22 ERA in 21 starts before being released.
