Contracts

Here are the Indians color coded contractual considerations. From top to bottom, players that have signed long term contracts are listed first, followed by the arbitration eligible players in order of experience, ending with pre-arbitration eligible players. In general it can be assumed that pre-arb players will make between $500 thousand (referred to as $500K from now on) and $600K. All other players will have their contract values posted. Majority of numbers come from Cot’s Baseball ContractsUpdated: 4/4/2014.
