2012 Washington Nationals Payroll, Roster, Uniform Numbers -

After a generous donation of the 2012 service time totals, we've gotten the 2012-13 off-season payroll tracking off and running.

These presentations show the following for each team.

  • Players with MLB experience currently on the team's 40-man roster.
  • The player's service time through end of 2012, agent, and how they were acquired.
  • Each player's contract status, signed or not and the general terms.
  • The year-by-year salaries, options and buyouts for guaranteed contracts.
  • The pathway to free agency for pre-FA players
  • Estimated 2013 arbitration awards from's Arbitration Toolkit
  • Any one-time payments like option buyouts or transfers due to trades.
  • Then for each team-season we estimate current and future payroll obligations.
  • Show the number of players already under contract.
  • Sum this up for every team in a table on our front page updated every day.
  • Player-specific material also appears at the top of each team page.
  • This material should be updated daily.
  • We also link from the front page to our 2012-13 Free Agency Tracker and our 2012-13 Transaction list.
