MLB Offseason: Payroll Outlook, Non-Tender & 40-Man Candidates

By Jason Martinez | UPDATED November 17, 2018

With two of the best young players in the game in line for potential record-breaking contracts and no shortage of teams who are expected to make competitive bids for their services, the current offseason is setting up to be an intriguing one.

Understanding which teams will be in the mix for Bryce Harper and Manny Machado, or any other top free agents, is not an exact science. In most cases, we don’t know if a team has a specific payroll limit or whether a team would be willing to exceed a previously set target. But if we look to payroll from recent seasons, projected arbitration salaries, future contract obligations and good reporting, there is enough information available to make an educated guess on which teams can or can’t be aggressive in free agency.

November, however, is typically a slow month for free agent signings. The Winter Meetings, taking place in Las Vegas from December 9-13, are where things will begin to pick up steam. First things first, though. Two important deadlines leading up to those meetings are important. Teams have until November 20th to add players to the 40-man roster—this will protect them from the Rule 5 draft on December 13th—and until November 30th to tender contracts to players who are eligible for arbitration.

In order to help you prepare for all of the offseason madness, I have organized a ton of relevant information and sorted it by team. Below, you’ll find each team’s estimated Opening Day payroll from 2018 (via Cot’s Contracts), projected 2019 payroll—includes Matt Swartz’s arbitration projections and Roster Resource’s projection for pre-arbitration salaries—future payroll obligations through 2023, current 40-man roster count, non-tender candidates and notable candidates to be added to the 40-man roster. Each team’s offseason needs are also listed. 

*A player can be a non-tender candidate for several reasons, but it mostly comes down to expected performance at projected salary. The projected salary is listed in parentheses next to each player.

*A player becomes eligible for the Rule 5 draft after their fourth professional season if signed at age 19 or older or after their fifth season if signed at age 18 or younger. If they are not placed on their respective team’s 40-man roster, they are eligible to be selected in the Rule 5 draft.
