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.
