But in any given season, there is minimal difference. 1 WAR give or take, for the most part over the last several years.
Both at ages where they could fall off a cliff at any moment. Iglesias probably the better player but it’s minimal and nothing to really worry about.
With the Freddy Galvis signing, the ODP is now projected at $61.25M
Anthony Santander's projected salary is the midpoint between the Orioles' offer and Santander's ask pending the arbitration hearing where the arbiter must choose either the team's offer or the player's ask.
The updated chart is available on Google docs at:
I consider Iglesias to be the better player. 12.4 rWAR in 841 games vs. 7.8 in 998. That’s not trivial IMO. At the same time, I agree with you that for one year, Galvis + prospects + $2 mm > Iglesias. I happen to like the prospects we got.
