Legend:

Blue = Club Option; Orange = Player Option; Green = Mutual Option; Purple = Vesting Option; Yellow = Super 2

* - Minimum salary in 2014 is $500K.

* - Super 2 eligibility for 2015 and beyond is projected based on current service time and if they play the entire 2014 season in the big leagues. 

General Notes:

- Most of the players with minimum salaries will earn league minimum wages around $490K (or slightly above) depending on their service time.

- Major League service time is through the 2013 season.  172 days of service time is considered 1 major league season. Service time listing shows the years before the decimal point, and the days after. Ex: 2.134 is 2 years and 134 days of service time.  Though the season is really 180 days or so long, you cannot accrue anymore than 172 days of service time in a season.

- For years beyond 2014, all of free agency, Super 2, and arbitration are projected as if all players played a full season at the big league level in 2014 and going forward.  Obviously, for several players free agency and arbitration will actually be pushed back a year or two as they spend more time in the minors over the next few years.
