* - This is not intended as an accurate payroll accounting for current. Trades are not prorated, new debuts are not added, incentives are not included.
† - 2017 arbitration projections are provided by Matt Swartz and MLBTradeRumors.com. Please check the link for a description of process and a lot more great transaction content.
All salary values are VERY unofficial. On occasion, we have estimated arbitration eligibility.
Future arbitration eligibility assumes players will play full major league seasons.
Signing bonuses are typically prorated across the contract, but in some cases may have been paid at the time of signing.
For information like contract history, contract incentives, and more, we heartily recommend Cot's Contracts
Unsigned players salaries are estimated based on the last three years of salary data:
    $770.9k for pre-arbitration, $1.39M for 1st-year arb, $2.83M for 2nd-year-arb, $4.31M for 3rd-year-arb, $5M for 4th-year-arb.
