Players on the major league 40-man roster are “protected” from the major league portion of the Rule 5 Draft.  Players placed on the Triple-A roster, up to 38, are “protected” from the minor league portion of the draft.  The Rule 5 Draft will be held at MLB’s Winter Meetings in San Diego, December 4-11, 2022.  

The draft is usually held on Friday afternoon which would be the ninth.  Teams can only select players during each portion of the draft if they have openings on their 40-man rosters and/or their Triple-A rosters.

The cost of a selection during the minor league portion is $24,500 per pick.  There is no restriction on which level a player can be assigned.

Money left under the Luxury Tax Limit.  The three sites I follow don’t agree on payroll, so I’m not going to provide my calculations.  Let’s just say they are somewhat similar.  The Luxury Tax Limit is $230M.

Estimates 2022 Payroll 2022 Luxury Tax Payroll Paid Out Over the Luxury Tax Limit
FanGraphs’ Roster Resource $232,782,628 $236,337,116 $6.337,116
Baseball Prospectus’ Cot’s Contracts $228,740,514 $237,131,015 $7,131,015
Sportrac $224,655,294 $240,734,815 $10,734,815


7 thoughts on “Updated Roster Information Now That Arbitration Has Been Avoided

  1. Phillies will be strapped with underachieving
    and overpaid players for the next few years. It’ll be another 5 years of no playoffs.

  2. I think that one concern this offseason will be SP. Gibson is a FA, Nola has a club option, and Eflin has a mutual option. I suggest that if they can’t negotiate extensions with Nola and Eflin that they make the club option on Nola and QO Eflin if that still exists and if he voids the mutual option. (The QO goes away if the MLBPA agrees to an international draft.)

    I also considered accepting Segura’s option, but the Phillies can play Kingery at second base next season and save Segura’s salary for something else.

    I haven’t been able to find out what “Rangers pay undisclosed portion of money remaining on contract” means in dollars this season.

    But, I would not be surprised (if the Phillies still suck come mid-July) if Middleton tells Dombrowski to get under the LTL and one or two big-ticket players are traded to avoid the tax this year.

    1. If the Phillies need to save money, I guess declining Segura’s option would be one way to do that. But expecting Kingery or Maton to replicate Segura’s production would be a tough sell.

  3. Of the 5 on the 60-day IL…assume JoJo and Marchan come off in June sometime and go onto the 40….Emmanuel and Sheriff possibly get DFAed once they come off the IL…..and Coonrod….just not sure in what direction the Phillies will go with big Sam once he comes off.

  4. I believe the QO will be a thing in MLB whether or not the union agrees to an international draft or not. As far as I know, clubs will still be able to slap the QO on FAs. If the players say “OK” to an international draft, the penalty (losing a draft pick) will go away. Teams who sign those QO FAs will no longer lose their second pick. However, clubs who lose the player will still receive compensation. The compensation depends on the contract the player signs for, and whether or not you are under/over the LTT. So if Dombrowski uses the QO on Eflin (and he should), and Eflin declines and signs a deal worth at least 50M, the Phillies would get a draft pick after the 4th round (if they stay above the cap thru the end of the season).
    And that 15M mutual option pretty much means nothing. Almost always, one side will decline the option. I can’t ever remember (although I’m sure it’s probably happened a couple of times) both parties opting in.

    1. Hinkie……IMO, the Philies do not decline the Eflin option if he continues to pitch like he has been so far this season…..$15M is a friendly contract for one year.

      Now there is that possibility he could decline it and then in that instance the Phillies will probably let him walk…why have a disgruntled player on the active roster.

      And you are correct….Phillies QO him and hopefully get a compensatory pick.

      1. Yeah, Romus. Most likely, the Phillies are all in on the 15M salary for 2023. One year deals are never really too risky/terrible. Eflin is most likely going to decline the mutual option. He’ll look for a multi year deal (especially with his knee(s) history). He’d even get ~4M more waiting for the Phillies to tag him with QO, and accepting.
        Now if Eflin were to get injured before the season ends, the club would more likely be the ones to decline the option year (depending on the severity of the injury).
