MLB: Los Angeles Angels at Chicago White Sox Patrick Gorski-USA TODAY Sports

The guys at MLB Trade Rumors developed an accurate arbitration projection system for baseball a while ago, and here are their projections for this year.

As it pertains to the Angels, here are the projected salaries, in order of service time (year.day). 172 days constitutes one year of service time. A player needs 6 years of service time to become a free agent.

Eric Young Jr. (5.163) – $1.1MM

Martin Maldonado (5.156) – $2.8MM

Garrett Richards (5.148) – $7.0MM

Blake Wood (5.131) – $2.2MM

Shane Robinson (5.002) – $600K

Matt Shoemaker (3.166) – $4.4MM

Tyler Skaggs (3.135) – $1.9MM

Blake Parker (3.036) – $1.7MM

C.J. Cron (3.010) – $2.8MM

Cam Bedrosian (2.153) – $1.2MM

Andrew Heaney (2.150) – $800K

J.C. Ramirez (2.139) – $2.6MM

Should they keep all of the above players on the 25-man roster over the winter, arbitration salaries would total $29.1 million.

Add this figure to the guaranteed salaries already on the books, and the Opening Day payroll would be $153.025 million (assuming Justin Upton opts into his current deal) plus the salaries of pre-arbitration players and/or free agents. The aforementioned $153M figure does not include player benefits.
