Contract Notes:
"Serf" means player has no bargaining power and will be paid the MLB minimum of $500,000 or close to it. For 2014, anyone signed for under $550,000 is listed as "serf." Many players are signed to "split" contracts that pro-rate one amount for time spent in the Majors and a lesser amount while in the minors (sometimes the minimum, sometimes, low six figures for more experienced players). Minimum minor-league pay for anyone with a day of MLB service is $81,500. 40-man newbies earn a minimum of $40,750.

Arbitration eligibility and free agent status are dependent on service time accrued in the Majors. Bonuses are not included in salary figures.

Adrian Beltre's 2016 is voidable if he fails to reach 600 PAs in 2015 or 1,200 across 2014-2015.

Yu Darvish receives $0.8 million for each season not on disabled list (bonus pro-rated downward if disabled).

Derek Holland's contract includes 2017-2018 club options with a $1.5mm buyout in 2017 and $1mm in 2018.

Matt Harrison has a club option for 2018 at $13.25 million with a $2mm buyout. It vests if he pitches 600 innings during 2015-2017 and 200 in 2017.

Elvis Andrus is signed through 2022 plus a $15mm club option in 2023 that can vest, and he can opt out after 2018 or 2019.

Martin Perez is signed through 2020 with club options for 2018-2020 and buyouts of $2.45mm (2018), $750k (2019) and $250k (2020).
