The Sox also have 2 arb eligible players for next season; Beckham and De Aza, plus Viciedo who is still technically in his pre-arb years, but is making nearly $3 million this year.
The more realistic figure, with arb players and the rest of the 25-man roster to fill out, is about $58 million. Still a lot of wiggle room.
