* - This is not intended as an accurate payroll accounting for current. Trades are not prorated, new debuts are not added, incentives are not included.
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 as of now all assumed to 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:
    $500k for pre-arbitration, $1.7M for 1st-year arb, $2.7M for 2nd-year-arb, $3.9M for 3rd-year-arb, $5M for 4th-year-arb.
