Default 2014 Contract Obligations and Arbitration Eligible Players, also Released/non-tenders

Hey guys,

Anyway we can get a list going on contract obligations who's staying who's going? Or who's gone already.

Also hopefully we can sticky this and continue adding to it.

Thanks a lot!
I'm excited to see how Hahn handles this offseason, looks to be interesting. A ton of decisions.

One problem with that spreadsheet - Viciedo isn't going to his first arb until next offseason.

He will get a decent bump in salary, though, surely over $3M.

Here's last year's numbers for example so you can fill in some of the blanks:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/...Gc&output=html

If Beckham goes to arb, he'll get well over his last year's figure of $2,925,000
Also, De Aza will get a bump up on his 2013 salary of $2,075,000

So if we keep all three, the total payroll would be up to around $70-75M.
Adding in the near minimum players to make up a 25 man roster, we're at $75-85M.

I'd think that leaves room for another mid-tier FA signing.

What are the rules in regards to Arbitration 1-2-3.....I know its 1-2-3 in a sense of years but how about those listed at pre-arb?

What does PRE-ARB mean? Is it usually 1yr/650k ?

Each player gets 3 arbitration years before he becomes a free agent, except for super-two, which a few players get to arbitration early and have 4 arbitration years.

It's basically a count, but each year is a potential for a substantial raise, especially if a player has a really good season. Most players come to an agreement for the Arb year contract before there is a hearing.

Pre-Arb is during player's first 3 big league offseasons. Pre-Arb players are tendered a contract with a small raise either before or during spring training.

Russ did a pretty good job explaining them, pre-arb years the player is basically at the mercy of the team, I don't know how many rights players have in pre-arb years other than some very moderate pay minimums.

For example, Beckham's 3 pre-arb seasons, his salary was:

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.
