Share via: Share: Facebook Share: Twitter Share: Google Share: Pinterest Share: Print Share: Email
Here is an updated payroll listing after all the trade activity in July by the Indians where they shipped off players on the 40-man such as Alex White and Orlando Cabrera and added players like Kosuke Fukudome, Ubaldo Jimenez, and Thomas Neal. I have also updated the listing with recent 40-man activity to remove players like Mitch Talbot, Jared Goedert, Travis Buck, etc and add players like Cord Phelps, Jason Kipnis and Lonnie Chisenhall.

This is the most comprehensive listing in regard to the Cleveland Indians 40-man payroll and contract status you will find on the web. Included below is the payroll and player control outlook for the next seven years, service time through 2010, and lots of contract information for every player. This payroll chart is linked on the top of the page below the title and to the right.

*** - Players with the asterisk are not on the 40-man, but have guaranteed deals for 2011.

General Notes: 

- The 2011 salaries listed for Ubaldo Jimenez and Kosuke Fukudome are revised from their actual full 2011 salaries.  Fukudome actually makes $13.5 million in 2011, but as part of the deal the Indians only owe him $775K the rest of the season. Jimenez actually makes $2.8 million in 2011, but with the Indians on the hook for the last two months of his salary this year the $1M amount listed is a rough pro-rated amount for what the Indians owe him the rest of the season give or take $100K.

- Most of the players will earn league minimum salaries ($413K) or right around it depending on their service time. Players in the minors on optional assignment are listed at $67K which is the amount they receive while on such an assignment.

- Major League service time is through the 2010 season.  172 days of service time is considered 1 major league season. Service time listing shows the years before the decimal point, and the days after. Ex: 2.134 is 2 years and 134 days of service time.  Though the season is really 180 days or so long, you cannot accrue anymore than 172 days of service time in a season.

- Free agency is projected as if all players played a full season at the big league level from this year going forward.  Obviously, for several players free agency will actually be pushed back a year or two as they spend more time in the minors in the coming years, but the listing is to show the earliest they can become a free agent.
