What does payroll look like next year?


Recommended Posts

The same more or less. Wells, Blanton, Ibanez, Burnett (still have his buyout), Grilli, and Thatcher are all off the books, but Trout's extension kicks in which basically consumes any money they shed. Add in Street's option and the arb guys and you're looking at a very similar payroll. Arb guys include Richards, Freese, Beckham, Jepsen, Pestano, Salas, Santiago, Conger, Kohn, Campana, and Cowgill. Remember, none of the raises to Pujols, Hamilton, Weaver, and Wilson count towards the luxury tax threshold. It takes the average annual value of the contract, not what each player is earning specifically.

Here's salary information for the Angels and every MLB team:

And if you look towards the top of the Angels page, there's a link that says, "2014-2019 payroll obligations", which takes you to this spreadsheet:

We have $123 million committed next year.  That number does not include options, arbitration-elgible players, and players making at or near league minimum.

I think you'll see the Angels go over the luxury tax for the sake of a starting pitcher. Both Weav and Wilson are on the downslope portion of their respective careers, Santiago's lacked consistency, Shoemaker may not find the same success the second time around (or maybe he will and the splitter is as effective as it looks right now), Skaggs will miss the full season and Richards won't be back until probably May but even then he's working without a Spring training and will need replicate similar velocity despite a knee that may not be 100%.

I think the Angels will go big and spend the money for a good SP.

Plenty of probable non-tenders in the arb bunch though. Beckham, Campana, Pestana, Freese (more possible than probible) and potentially Kohn.
