    Paid - Annual

    Here are the relevant dates. The big money comes at six-plus years of MLB service – free agency. Up through three years of service, players make close to minimum salary. Years four through six, salaries ramp up via arbitration eligibility based on how well the player performs.

    So, lets say Winn debuts to open 2024. 2024-2026, he makes relatively little. 2027-2029 he is arb eligible. 2030 he can become a free agent.

    Free

    He won’t become a free agent unless he sticks around in the Big Leagues for awhile. He’s got a ways to go before he steps into a Big League box for the first time. No reason to rush him. The Redbirds clearly have the best IF in the NL with Nado, Eddie, Donnie and Goldy running clockwise around the diamond.

    Speaking of payroll I contacted Derrick Goold about the discrepancy between his reporting of the Arenado contract and what Cots’, Roster Resource, and Spotrac had. He suggested I contact Cot’s and ask them myself or have them share why they had it listed that way. I did contact Cot’s and provided them with the information from Goold and they wrote me back thanking me for the information and they changed the Cardinal payroll listing on their website, which currently now sits at $165M.

    Good messenger work, gscottar. Glad they accepted your documentation, but I wonder why the source just didn’t contact them himself… Oh, well, the result is what matters…

    I really don’t know how these payroll reporting sites get their information. Some front offices may be more willing to share than others, I really don’t know.
