2011 Pittsburgh Pirates 40-Man Roster and Payroll

 

 

 

 

 

NOTES:

  • All salaries in bold are official.
  • All ages are as of the start of the 2011 Pittsburgh Pirates season.
  • Players in the minor leagues make $32,500 in their first year on the 40-man roster, $67,300 in their second year, and $97,500 in their third year. Any player with major league service time makes at least $67,300, regardless of how many years of service.
  • AST stands for Approximate Service Time. It is calculated as years.days, which means one year and 32 days would look like: 1.032. A year of service time is 172 days.
  • These figures don’t include potential performance bonuses. Performance bonuses, when achieved, will be added in the “Other Expenses” section.
  • This chart only includes players currently on the 40-man roster.  Non-roster invitees who are projected to make the opening day roster are included in the “Other Expenses” section, and are only reflected in the “Estimated 2011 Payroll” figure.  Since their additions would mean the removal of league minimum salaries, there is a section in the “2011 Credits” which removes the respective league minimum figures.

    Do you really think that Clement and Pearce will both be non-tendered? i see one being tendered and the other being apart of a off-season trade. And i can’t see them non-tendering Argenis Diaz either, other than that i would agree with you on Duke and DY and the rest getting non tendered.

    Could you explain how Karstens used an option last year? He had 1 option to start the year, was DFA’d off the roster which I don’t think counts as an option and then added to the major league roster (whcih again I didn’t think used an option) and to my recollection remained at the major league level the rest of the year.

    You know the rules a whole lot better than me so why did he lose an option?

      Good catch. Karstens still has one option remaining.

      Also realized that the ages weren’t updated.
