Legend: (a) = auto-renew at league minimum, T = Team Option, P = Player Option, V = Vesting Option, Arb = Likely arb-eligible
* = players in minors on league minimum deals are only paid 16.5% of their salary while in the minors
Salary in this color represents an extension year
Note: This table is a best-guess, and likely won't match OOTP exactly for auto-renew and arb eligibility.
StatsPlus is ignoring Super Two rules, and also assuming all players on 40-man are in the majors all season.
