According an annual report by the MLBPA,  the average salary for the 912 players on the 2010 season rosters averaged $3,014,512. It is the first time that the league’s average salary surpassed $3 million, according to the union for the players’ calculations.

While surpassing the $3 million mark is significant, the rise in average salary over 2009’s $2,996,106 for 926 players was just 0.62 percent, the smallest increase since the league saw a 4.92 percent decline in salary in 1995.

Showing that the majority of players in the league actually earn close to the league minimum, the report shows 346 players – 56 percent of the players in the league last year – with 0 to 2 years of service time earning an average salary of $504,877. The minimum salary in MLB will be $414,000 in 2011. By comparison 13 players  with at least 15 years of service time saw an average salary of $8,246,873

The New York Yankees led the way with an average salary of $7,604,930 for 31 players, a decrease of just under 1 percent compared to their 2009 average salary of $7,663,351 for 28 players in 2009.

The Philadelphia Phillies leapt from ranking #8 in 2009 with an average of $4,055,455 for 31 players to #2 last season with an average of $5,662,551 for 28 players, an increase of 28 percent. The club has seen average salary increase by 54 percent since 2006.

The other club making a big move upward in average salary was the Chicago White Sox who had an average salary of $4,580,868 for 29 players ranking them #4 after being #12 in 2009 when their average was $3,458,400 for 29 players, an increase of 32 percent.

At the other end of the spectrum, the Pittsburg Pirates ranked #30 for the second year in a row, and no higher than 29th in the last 3 years with an average salary of $1,140,598 or 38 percent below the league average and 6.7 times less than the Yankees average salary in 2010. By comparison, the Pirates had an average salary of $1,871,402 in 2007.

In terms of 2010 playoff teams, the average ranking for the 8 teams that made the postseason was 10 by average salary (Yankees highest at #1 and Reds lowest at #19). The following shows average salary (plus ranking) are as follows:

ALDS

  • Twins – $3,511,605 for 30 players (#11)
  • Rays – $2,621.748 for 29 players (#16)

NLDS

  • Reds - $2,445,248 for 32 players (#19)

Final total payrolls for the 2010 season as calculated by MLB will be released next week. The league uses a different accounting method so each year the MLBPA's figures and MLB's are slightly off.
