2010: $445,000
2011: $485,000
2012: $520,000

Time is based on "service time." Basically, everyday that a player is on his team's 25-man, active roster counts as 1 day of service. A full MLB season is 180 days. This is why some teams choose to not bring up and coming blue chip prospects right away, to postpone their service clock from starting.
Thanks guys

So IT'S safe to assume almost all pre-ard guys are coming back with a small raise?
