Contract Notes:
"Serf" means player has no bargaining power and will be paid the MLB minimum of $500,000 or close to it. For 2016, 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.

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.

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).

Cole Hamels' 2019 is a club option with a $6mm buyout. Can be vested.

Tony Barnette's 2018 is a club option with a $250k buyout.
