Left Field

4th OFer
Backup C
SP # 4
SP # 5


Players Leaving: Holliday, Glaus, Pineiro, Khalil Greene, DeRosa, Smoltz, Wellemeyer, Ankiel, and LaRue


- If it says $7(750K) the ( ) means options and whatever is inside ie 750K means the team buyout. 

- Rasmus and Motte will most likely be Super Two's if they stay on the 25 man roster during most of 2010

- Arbitration normally goes 40%, 60%, and 80% what you would get on the free market. 

- Total Payroll currently does not show players receiving Arbitration

- Total Payroll for future years beyond 2010 assume options were decline and buy out added into Total Payroll

- Starting Payroll in 2009 was $88,528,409 but in 2008 it was $99,624,449

- If Players had bonuses they were divided by years of contract. Than added according to each year

- My guesses for Arb: Ludwick $5.5M, Schumaker $2.5M, Thompson Non-Tendered than released, Kinney $750K


Most of the info was gathered at Cot's Contracts. I would appreciate any help in filling in the blank spots of Arbitration. I will update this when ever new info is acquired or we acquire someone. 


Current Roster

Just kind of a rough draft to throw out there. I probably have some mistakes and will need to take guesses on the Arbitration of the players. Schumaker could be a difficult one to guess. Not sure if Thompson will even be back on the team myself.
