A look at the Blue Jays’ expected salary arbitration numbers gives a sense of how much money they’ll have to work with this off-season.
Since last week, MLBTradeRumors has been releasing its projections for the 2020 season.
The forecasts are based on historical data, service time, and precedent cases, all of which would be considered in an arbitration proceeding if one were to be instituted in the early months of the next year.
A broad indication of what arbitration-eligible players might anticipate earning is provided by the data, although they are not utilized as a “scorecard” for agents and teams.
The popular website has a solid track record in this area as well; it often comes within a few digits of the final total.
The Blue Jays are expected to pay a total of $43.1 million in the arbitration to their 12 arbitration-eligible players (U.S).
In the final year of his arbitration, José Berroos is expected to earn $10.9 million. At $10 million, Teoscar Hernández is in second place, while Vladimir Guerrero Jr. comes in third with $7.9 million in the bank.
George Springer, Hyun-Jin Ryu, Randal Grichuk, and Lourdes Gurriel Jr. each have guaranteed contracts of almost $65 million for the upcoming season.
Rookie contracts for players like Bo Bichette and Jordan Romano, who have not yet reached arbitration age, push the Jays’ payroll up to the $110-to-$115 million level.
For fear of losing out to other teams and agencies, the Toronto Blue Jays keep their budget under wraps.
The salary is still likely to rise in waves, as president Mark Shapiro previously stated, and it is feasible to surpass the previous high of $163 million, as per Cot’s Baseball Contracts, which was established in 2017.
