Here are the Angels’ projected arbitration salaries for 2018

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 ( 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.
