    Orioles Claim Snelten

    Under the curent Major League collective bargaining agreement (the CBA runs through the 2021 season): The minimum salary is $545,000 and will increase to $555,000 in 2019. The minimum salary is subject to a cost-of-living adjustment (rounded to the nearest $500) in 2020 and again in 2021. The salary for a player on the 40-man roster who is currently playing in the minor leagues depends upon whether that player is under a split contract or a full major league contract. If under a full major league contract, the player is paid his major league salary while in the minors. If under a split contract, the Minor League minimum salary depends upon whether this is the player's 1st season on a 40-man roster or his second season (and beyond) on a 40-man roster: For the first timers, the minimum salary is: (I'm guessing that this is the case for D.J. Snelten) 2018 — $44,500 2019 — $45,300 2020 — at the 2019 rate per season plus a cost of living adjustment, rounded to the nearest $100 2021 — at the 2020 rate per season plus a cost of living adjustment, rounded to the nearest $100 For all others: 2018 — $88,900; 2019 — $90,400; 2020 — at the 2019 rate per season plus a cost of living adjustment, rounded to the nearest $100 2021 — at the 2020 rate per season plus a cost of living adjustment, rounded to the nearest $100

    The 40-man is now full. Beckham, Britton and Ynoa are on the 60 day DL. At a minimum, there'll be 1 cut when Britton returns. If there are no trades before then, there will be a number of candidates competing to yield their spot for Britton.

    Joseph Optioned to Norfolk (Booo!)

    "His contract is guaranteed and there is no way the union would let him take $1 less than he is owed under the terms of his contract and the CBA." https://www.mlb.com/news/michael-cuddyer-mets-reach-buyout-agreement/c-165936318 http://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/16650867/why-mets-pay-bobby-bonilla-119-million-today-every-july-1-2035 https://www.cbssports.com/mlb/news/what-you-dont-know-about-bonilla-and-saberhagen-mets-deals/

  5. Wow -- honesty and humility bundled in one being -- my hope for humanity is restored. Are there any others out there?
  6. Mostly, I prefer the opinions of those who are paid for their actions and choices over those who are paid or (as is the case here) unpaid for their posts. It would be interesting to compare the "success" rates of the O's braintrust's decisions to the expressed contemporaneous opinions of those who post here.
  7. I updated the below linked chart using the information from the Baseball Prospectus website: https://legacy.baseballprospectus.com/compensation/index.php?cyear=2018&team=&pos= AL East Payrolls Chart Note that the A.L. East total payroll was unchanged from last year. The Yankees pared their payroll by $30M, 15%; and that's after dropping it $32M, 14%, the previous year. The BoSox increased their payroll by $36M, 18%, after staying even with their 2016 payroll last year. This year's Red Sox payroll exceeds that of the Yankees by $67M. The amazing Rays squeezed out a 2018 increase in ODP of 8.4%, $6M -- they are outspent by the O's, the next lowest ODP in the division, by over 100%.
  8. My last projection proved true The Opening Day Payroll (ODP) is $154.45M. Last year's ODP was $164.3M. That's a reduction of 6% from last year and It's the first such instance under the Duquette regime since his 1st year, 2011 - 2012, with the O's. I'll update the AL East Payrolls chart when the final numbers are available. 2018 Opening Day Payroll Chart 2018 $ Left to Spend Chart AL East Payrolls Chart

    Cuts We Should Be/Could Be Interested In

    This depends upon whether or not the player had a "guaranteed" contract. http://m.mlb.com/glossary/transactions/non-guaranteed-contract

    Cuts We Should Be/Could Be Interested In

    http://m.mlb.com/glossary/transactions/designate-for-assignment Under the new CBA, the DFA time span is now 7 days.
  11. https://www.thecubreporter.com/book/export/html/3539 Per Article XIX-C of the CBA and with the player's consent, a player on the MLB 10-day or 60-day DL may be assigned to a minor league club for rehabilitation purposes for up to 20 days (for position players) and up to 30 days (for pitchers), and a player on an MLB 7-day DL (acute concussion) may be assigned to a minor league club for rehabilitation purposes up to five days (for position players) and up to eight days (for pitchers). With approval of the MLB Commissioner, a player who has undergone elbow UCL reconstruction surgery (so-called "Tommy John Surgery") may have his Minor League Rehab Assignment renewed for up to 30 additional days (in the form of three ten-day renewals). With approval of the MLB Commissioner, if a player incurs a new (different) injury or illness or suffers a recurrence of the previous injury or illness while on a Minor League Rehab Assignment, the player must be recalled from his Rehab Assignment and remain inactive for at least five days (for position players) or seven days (for pitchers) before starting another Minor League Rehab Assignment. A player on an MLB DL who is assigned to a minor league club for rehabilitation purposes continues to accrue MLB service time, and does not count against the minor league club's Active Roster.

    This relates to Dan Jennings. I believe he was released. If so, I believe that he is now a free-agent and may sign with any team on a new major or minor league contract. The signing team would be responsible only for the newly contracted salary. Can anyone confirm or rebut this?
  13. Updated charts (see opening posts per links below) for the signings of the pre-arbitration players. The Opening Day Payroll (ODP) projection is now $154.45M. Last year's ODP was $164.3M 2018 Opening Day Payroll Chart 2018 $ Left to Spend Chart AL East Payrolls Chart

    Final 25 Roster?

    Neither is Tejada
  15. "The Zuver with the Zinker" He had some very good years with the O's before they became the best team in baseball for 16 years. I'm sorry to note his passing. https://www.dignitymemorial.com/obituaries/scottsdale-az/george-zuverink-6114935 https://www.baseball-reference.com/players/z/zuverge01.shtml From Wikipedia: "....In 1957, Zuverink and Frank Zupo twice formed the only "Z" battery in major league history......"
