A Detailed Analysis of 19 Major League Baseball Player Contracts that Avoid Salary Arbitration 

On January 16th of this year, 110 players filed for salary arbitration. Two days later, that list was whittled down to 48 players that exchanged salary figures with their respective clubs. If a club and player do not reach a deal before their arbitration hearing is scheduled, a panel of three arbitrators will select either the player figure or the club figure. No value in-between is selected.

Those hearings will be completed no later than Feb. 21st, and at that time, I do my annual evaluation of all the deals and rulings within those 48 players that comprise this year’s salary arbitration class. I also will be providing some historical background on salary arbitration with comments from longtime baseball execs on how they view the process.

Until then, I thought that it would be interesting to look at the 19 deals that have been done, so far. As I will write in my extensive article in late February, players win, even if they lose, and owners always feel a pinch in their wallets. Salary arbitration may be Marvin Miller’s most crowning achievement.

In total, every player signed to date will receive raises for 2008 from last season ranging from a low of (if you want to call it, “low”) $75,000 (Endy Chavez) to $2,350,000 (Casey Blake). Remember, in the case of six players, they received multi-year deals (Molina, 4 yrs; Cuddyer, 3 yrs; Betancourt, 2 yrs; Chavez, 2 yrs; Soriano, 2 yrs; Rauch, 2 yrs), and therefore, salaries escalate in subsequent years (i.e. Betancourt will make $2.05 million for this season, but see $3.35 million in ’09).

As mentioned, even when players lose, they win. 15 of the 19 players reached deals that were below the mid-point between the figure the club offered and the figure the player asked when they exchanged figures (Biemel and Guerrier deals were at exactly the mid-point, while Geary, and Proctor were above).

In total, these 19 players increase their salaries from 2007 to 2008 by $15,196,577.

And, as also mentioned, even though the owners “win” they lose at every turn with salary arbitration. In total, clubs will pay $3,317,500 more than their offering figure, and that’s just these 19 players. We’ll see how that figure balloons when hearings are done after the 21st of February.

Only one player (Yadier Molina) sees him making a salary less than what his club (Cardinals) offered in salary arbitration for 2008. And, one player (Soriano) will make exactly what the club (Braves) offered. Both players are part of a multi-year deals that will see sizable increases in following years, however.
