====================
21 players - Running Total: $92,035,000
--------------------
** Estimate for Viciedo is raised due to Boras representation, previous salary, 2012 power numbers, and potential of going to hearing.

By comparison, when similar hitter Carlos Quentin hit arb in 2011 with a similar $3.2M salary, he signed for $5.05M with more injury concerns and non-Boras rep.
