“Saves” can’t be used because it’s a stat incentive, just like HR or RBI or ERA can’t be used. “Games Finished” is used because it’s a playing time incentive, just like games played or innings pitched can be used.

Major League Rule 3(b)(5):

“No Major League Uniform Player’s Contract or Minor League Uniform Player Contract shall be approved if it contains a bonus for playing, pitching or batting skill or if it provides for the payment of a bonus contingent on the standing of the signing Club at the end of the championship season.”

WAR cannot be used as a performance bonus in contracts.
