An example of The Biz of Baseball's extensive report on MLB salary arbitration.
On Friday of last week, salary arbitration in MLB ended when Ryan Zimmerman of the Nationals reached a one-year, $3.325 million contract agreement. At the time, we reported on some “vital stats” on this year’s salary arbitration class, including the fact that salaries for the 111 players rose 143 percent from last season, mid-point agreements were up significantly from the year prior, and that the players beat the owners in salary arbitration hearings for the first time since 1996.
But, that was only a sliver of the details.
The Biz of Baseball is now publishing a 25 page report detailing each of the contracts for the 111 players that filed for salary arbitration this year. The report is broken down as follows:
Details for each Super Two
Details for each first time salary arbitration player
Details for each of the 15 multi-year contracts
Details for the three salary arbitration hearings, including the arbitrators on the panels.
A timeline charting when each contract was reached.
