Incentives

1) Russell Martin

2010: signed a one-year deal for $5.05 million, plus up to $100k in incentives (per Tony Jackson)

$50,000 for 550 PA
$50,000 for 600 PA

2009: signed a one-year deal for $3.9 million (per Dylan Hernandez)

2) Blake DeWitt

2010: His contract for 2010 calls for a salary of $410,000 if in the majors of $168,000 if in the minors (per Dylan Hernandez)

DeWitt was traded to the Cubs on July 31, so he was a Dodger for 119 days:
$410,000 x 119/183 = $266,612

2009: His salary is $405,000, and he was on the major league roster from opening day through April 29, for a total of 25 days.  Note:  he was sent down to AAA on April 13, but was recalled on April 17 due to the injury to Mientkiewicz.  Those four days count as major league service time because he was recalled due to an injury.
$405,000 x 25/183 = $55,328

DeWitt was recalled on June 7, and was optioned to AAA after the game on June 14, so he was on the MLB roster for 8 days.
$405,000 x 8/183 = $17,705

DeWitt was recalled on July 5, and was optioned to AAA on July 11, so he was on the MLB roster for 6 days.
$405,000 x 6/183 = $13,279

DeWitt was recalled on July 16, and was optioned to AAA on July 27, so he was on the MLB roster for 11 days.
$405,000 x 11/183 = $24,344

DeWitt was recalled on September 13, with 22 days left in the regular season.
$405,000 x 22/183 = $48,689

3) Casey Blake:  signed a three-year, $17.5 million contract in December 2008:

2009: $5 million
2010: $6 million
2011: $5.25 million
2012: $6 million club option ($1.25 million buyout)

The 2012 option buyout can increase based on the PA incentives below in 2011.  In addition, if traded between October 2, 2009 and October 1, 2010, the 2012 option buyout will increase by $750,000.

Blake also has potential for $500k annually in incentives (per Associated Press)
Annually (2009-2011)
$125,000 for 525 PA
$125,000 for 550 PA
$125,000 for 575 PA

Furcal receives a $1m annual bonus for "maintaining a core strengthening program to keep his back healthy" (per Diamond Leung), which was included in the 2009 salary

Furcal's 2009 salary is $6.5 million, but there is also a deferred $4 million signing bonus from his previous contract, that was paid in January 2009. 

Furcal also has a $12 million 2012 option, with the following details (per Dylan Hernandez):

  • Option vests with 600 PA in 2011
  • With 625 PA in 2011, Furcal can void 2012 option
  • With 1,600 PA from 2009-2011, Furcal is guaranteed another $1.3 million in 2012, either as the buyout of the option or added to the base salary if the option is picked up.  Furcal had 1,108 PA in 2009-2010

5) Reed Johnson

2010: Signed a one-year, $800,000 contract on February 1.  Johnson also has $250,000 in incentives (per Tony Jackson):

$50,000 for 600 PA - achieved September 14
$100,000 for 650 PA - achieved September 28
$150,000 for 675 PA

7) Andre Ethier:  signed a two-year deal for $15.25 million (breakdown via Associated Press):
$500,000 signing bonus
2010: $5.5 million in 2010
2011: $9.25 million in 2011

In addition, Ethier can earn up to $375,000 in incentives in 2010-2011 (per Dylan Hernandez):
Annually (2010-2011)
$25,000 for 600 PA
$50,000 for 650 PA
$50,000 for 675 PA

Achieving those incentives in 2010 will also add those amounts to Ethier's 2011 base salary.

2009: potential for $100k in incentives (per Tony Jackson)
$25,000 for 596 plate appearances -- achieved September 8
$25,000 for 625 PA -- achieved September 15 (PA #625 was
his sixth walk-off!
)

8) Ronnie Belliard

2010: signed a non-guaranteed, one-year deal worth $825,000. The contract "becomes guaranteed if he weighs in at 209 or fewer pounds at any point during spring training." (per Dylan Hernandez)

The contract became guaranteed on March 25, when Belliard weighed in at 208 pounds (per Dylan Hernandez).

Belliard also has $250,000 in incentives (per Associated Press):
$50,000 for 350 PA
$50,000 for 400 PA
$50,000 for 450 PA
$50,000 for 500 PA
$50,000 for 550 PA

2009: traded by National to Dodgers on August 30, with 35 days remaining in the regular season.  His contract called for $1.9 million for 2009.
$1,900,000 x 35/183 = $363,388

9) Xavier Paul

2010: His salary is estimated to be $400,000, and he was recalled on April 23.  He was optioned to Triple A on May 8, so he was with  the Dodgers for 15 days.
$400,000 x 15/183 = $32,787

Paul was recalled on May 18, and optioned to Triple A on May 31, so he was with the Dodgers for 13 days
$400,000 x 13/183 = $28,415

Paul was recalled on July 3, and optioned to Triple A on August 4, so he was with the Dodgers for 32 days:
$400,000 x 32/183 = $69,945

2009: His salary is $400,000, and he was recalled on May 7, with 151 days remaining in the regular season. 
$400,000 x 151/183 = $330,055

10) Jamey Carroll:  Signed two-year deal for $3.85m plus incentives, here is how the contract breaks down (per Tony Jackson):
$1 million signing bonus*
2010: $1.05 million
2011: $1.8 million

*Based on the report from Ken Rosenthal & Jon Paul Morosi of Fox Sports, Carroll is being paid $1.35 million in 2010, and $2.5 million in 2011, so I am counting the signing bonus as broken out into $300,000 in 2010 and $700,000 in 2011 (per Tim Dierkes at MLB Trade Rumors and Maury Brown of The Business of Baseball, we find out that in 2011 the signing bonus is spread out as $300,000 in January and $400,000 in December)

Carroll also has $525,000 annually in incentives (per Tony Jackson):
Annually (2010-2011)

$50,000 for 300 PA - 2010 achieved August 12

$125,000 for 550 PA

11) A.J. Ellis

2010: His salary is estimated to be $400,000, and he was recalled on April 10, and was optioned on July 21, meaning he was on the roster for 102 days. 
$400,000 x 102/183 = $222,951

Ellis was recalled on August 4, then optioned after the game on August 22, so he was with the club for 19 days.
$400,000 x 19/183 = $41,530

Ellis was recalled on September 3, with 31 days left in the regular season.
$400,000 x 31/183 = $67,760

2009: His salary is $400,000, and he was on the major league roster from May 29 through May 31, for a total of 3 days. 
$400,000 x 3/183 = $6,557

Ellis was recalled on June 15, and was optioned to AAA on July 2, so he was on the MLB roster for 17 days.
$400,000 x 17/183 = $37,158

Ellis was recalled on September 1, with 34 days left in the regular season.
$400,000 x 34/183 = $74,317

12) Garret Anderson

2010: Signed a minor league deal on March 3, 2010, that will pay him $550,000 in the majors, with a potential for $200,000 in incentives:

$50,000 for 350 PA

Anderson was designated for assignment on August 8, and given his outright release on August 10, meaning he was with the Dodgers for 128 days:
$550,000 x 34/183 = $384,699

13) Vicente Padilla

2010: He received a $1 million signing bonus and a $4.025 million base salary (per Ken Gurnick).  The AP reports that his $1 million signing bonus will be paid on April 1, 2011.  Also, Padilla can earn up to $1 million in incentives in 2010 (per the Associated Press):

$125,000 for 150 innings pitched
$125,000 for 160 IP
$150,000 for 170 IP
$175,000 for 180 IP
$200,000 for 190 IP
$225,000 for 200 IP

"Starting with 170 innings, bonus payments would be deferred until April 1, 2011."

2009: His salary is $400,000, and his contract was purchased on August 27, with 39 days left in the regular season. 
$400,000 x 39/183 = $85,246

14) Hiroki Kuroda:

2011: signed a one-year $12 million deal on November 15, 2010. Per Jayson Stark of ESPN, Kuroda has a four-million dollar signing bonus that will be paid in two equal installments in 2012 and 2013. The payout:

2011: $8 million
2012: $2 million
2013: $2 million

In addition, Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports reports that Kuroda has a full no-trade clause and has up to $500,000 in performance bonuses.

2008: signed a 3-year, $35.3 million contract on December 16, 2007

2009: $13.6 million ($10 million base salary plus $3.6 million of signing bonus)
2010: $14.1 million ($13 million base salary plus $1.1 million of signing bonus)

15) Charlie Haeger

2010: His salary is $411,000, and he was outrighted to Triple A on June 30, meaning he was on the big league roster for . 
$411,000 x 88/183 = $197,639

2009: His salary is $400,000, and his contract was purchased on August 11, with 55 days left in the regular season. 
$400,000 x 55/183 = $120,219

16) John Ely:  Ely's 2010 salary is $400,000. The Dodgers recalled Ely on April 28.  He was optioned to Triple A on May 7.  However, he was recalled on May 10, and since it was inside of 10 days, the option doesn't count, and Ely gets credit and pay as if he was never optioned.  Ely was optioned to Triple A on July 11. From April 28 through July 11 is 74 days: 
$400,000 x 74/183 = $161,749

Ely was then recalled on September 6, with 28 days left in the regular season: 
$400,000 x 28/183 = $61,202

17) Jonathan Broxton:  signed a two-year deal for $11 million (breakdown via Dylan Hernandez):
2010: $4 million
2011: $7 million

Broxton also has incentives that could add up to $500,000 to his 2011 salary, based on his 2010 performance (per Dylan Hernandez):
$500,000 for 68 games finished or 1st place in Rolaids Relief Man standings
$400,000 for 64 games finished or 2nd place in Rolaids Relief Man standings
$300,000 for 60 games finished or 3rd place in Rolaids Relief Man standings
$200,000 for 56 games finished or 4th place in Rolaids Relief Man standings
$100,000 for 53 games finished or 5th place in Rolaids Relief Man standings

Per Hernandez, "The escalators are non-cumulative, so if, say, Broxton finishes 64 games and is fourth in the Rolaids standings this year, he would get an extra $400,000 in 2011."

The Rolaids Relief Man award (one award for each league) is based on a point a point system, calculated as follows:
2 points for a win
3 points for a save
(-2) points for a loss
(-2) points for a blown save
1 extra point for a "tough save" (entering the game with tying run on base)

2009: one-year deal for $1.825 million, with potential for $200k in incentives (per Tony Jackson)
$50,000 for 45 games finished -- achieved August 30
$50,000 for 50 GF -- achieved September 8
$50,000 for 55 GF -- achieved September 26
$50,000 for 60 GF

18) George Sherrill

2010: His salary is $4,500,000, plus up to $150,000 in incentives (per Dylan Hernandez):

$75,000 for 60 games pitched -- achieved September 14
$75,000 for 70 G

2009: His salary is $2,750,000, and he was acquired via trade from Baltimore on July 30, with 66 days remaining in the regular season (beginning July 31). 
$2,750,000 x 66/183 = $991,803

19) Hong-Chih Kuo

2010: His salary is $950,000, plus up to $150,000 in incentives (per Dylan Hernandez):

$25,000 for 55 games pitched - achieved October 1
$25,000 for 60 G
$50,000 for 65 G
$50,000 for 70 G

20) Ronald Belisario:  His 2010 contract calls for a salary of $412,500, but he was placed on the restricted list for showing up to camp 35 days late.  While on the restricted list, Belisario was not paid.  He was activated on April 21. He was placed on the restricted list again on July 7, meaning he was with the club for 77 days: 
$412,500 x 77/183 = $173,566

Belisario was activated on August 10, with 55 days left in the regular season. 
$412,500 x 55/183 = $123,975

21) Carlos Monasterios:  He was acquired in the 2009 Rule 5 draft by the Mets from the Phillies, then sold to the Dodgers for roughly $60,000 (per Dylan Hernandez).  His 2010 salary is the major league minimum of $400,000.

22) Ramon Ortiz:  According to Dylan Hernandez (here and here), Ramon Ortiz will earn $1 million if he's in the majors, with a potential for $1.05M based on games started or $100,000 based on relief appearances.

Ortiz was designated for assignment on May 27.  He declined a minor league assignment, and became a free agent on June 7, meaning he gets credit for 64 days service time: 
$1,000,000 x 64/183 = $349,727

23) Manny Ramirez

2009: $25 million
2010: $20 million player option (exercised his 2010 option on October 28, per Jon Heyman of Sports Illustrated)

Manny's suspension means he won't be paid for the 50 game days he will miss, so his $25,000,000 salary is paid for only 133 of the 183 days of the regular season:  $25,000,000 x 133/183 = $18,169,399

Manny was claimed off waivers by the White Sox on August 30, with 35 days left in the season, meaning the White Sox are on the hook for: 
$20,000,000 x 35/183 = $3,825,137

The 2010 salary is deferred from 2011-2013, so the savings is as follows: 
2011 (25%): $956,284 
2012 (50%): $1,912,568 
2013 (25%): $956,284

2009: a minor league deal, Weaver is vying for a bullpen role and will earn $500,000 if he makes the big club. (per Ken Gurnick)

His major league salary is $500,000, and he was recalled on April 30, with 158 days remaining in the regular season. 
$500,000 x 158/183 = $431,694

$100,000 for 450 PA

26) Cory Wade

2010: His salary is $404,500, and he was on the opening day roster (on the DL).  He was outrighted to AAA on July 1, so he was on the MLB roster for 88 days.
$404,500 x 88/183 = $194,514

2009: His salary is $402,500, and he was on the opening day roster.  He was optioned to AAA after the game on June 27, so he was on the MLB roster for 84 days.
$402,500 x 84/183 = $184,754

Wade was recalled on July 8, and was optioned to AAA on August 2, so he was on the MLB roster for 25 days.
$402,500 x 25/183 = $54,986

27) Jon Link:  Link's 2010 salary is $400,000. The Dodgers recalled Link on April 18, and optioned to Albuquerque on April 21.  He was recalled on April 25 to replace the injured Vicente Padilla, and since it was within 10 days of being optioned Link gets credit for those days as if he was never optioned.  Link was optioned to Triple A on April 28, so he got credit for 10 days of major league service: 
$400,000 x 10/183 = $21,858

Link was then recalled on June 7, for just one day, getting optioned on June 8: 
$400,000 x 1/183 = $2,186

Link was then recalled on June 25, and was optioned on June 28, so he was with the club for 3 days: 
$400,000 x 3/183 = $6,557

Link was then recalled on July 11, and was optioned after the game July 18, so he was with the club for 8 days: 
$400,000 x 8/183 = $17,846

Link was then recalled on September 6, with 28 days left in the regular season: 
$400,000 x 28/183 = $61,202

28) James McDonald

2010: His salary is estimated to be $405,000, and he was recalled on July 19 with 77 days left in the regular season.

$400,750 x 108/183 = $236,508

29) Brent Leach

$400,000 x 89/183 = $194,536

30) Scott Elbert

2010:  His salary is estimated to be $400,000, and he was on the major league roster from May 28 through May 30, for a total of 3 days. 
$400,00 x 3/183 = $6,557

2009: His salary is $400,000, and he was on the major league roster from April 18 through April 29, for a total of 12 days. 
$400,000 x 12/183 = $26,230

Elbert was recalled on July 11, and was optioned to AAA on July 20, for a total of 9 days on the MLB roster. 
$400,000 x 9/183 = $19,672

Elbert was recalled on July 30, , and was optioned to AAA on August 8, for a total of 9 days on the MLB roster. 
$400,000 x 9/183 = $19,672

Elbert was recalled on September 1, with 34 days left in the regular season.
$400,000 x 34/183 = $74,317

31) Chin-Lung Hu

2010: I am estimating his salary as $401,000, and he was recalled on June 17, with Furcal on the bereavement list.  Hu was optioned on June 23, so he was with the club for 6 days:
$401,000 x 6/183 = $13,148

Hu was then recalled on September 6, with 28 days left in the regular season: 
$400,000 x 28/183 = $61,202

2009: His salary is $401,000, and he was recalled on September 13, with 22 days left in the regular season.
$401,000 x 22/183 = $48,208

32) Travis Schlichting

2010: His salary is estimated to be $400,000, and he was recalled on May 31.  He was optioned to Triple A on June 3, so he was with the club for 3 days: 
$400,000 x 3/183 = $6,557

He was called up again on June 16, and was optioned on June 24, so he was with the club for 8 days: 
$400,000 x 8/183 = $17,486

He was called up again on July 3, and was optioned on August 1, so he was with the club for 29 days: 
$400,000 x 29/183 = $63,388

He was recalled again on August 20, with 45 days left in the season: 
$400,000 x 46/183 = $98,361

2009: His salary is $400,000, and he was recalled on May 31. He was optioned before the game on June 20, so he spent 20 days on the roster. 
$400,000 x 20/183 = $43,716

33) Jamie Hoffmann

2010: Hoffmann was selected by the Nationals in the 2009 Rule 5 draft, then traded to the Yankees. The Dodgers received $50,000 per draft rules. Hoffmann must remain on the Yankees' active roster or disabled list all season, or he would have to clear waivers then be offered back to the Dodgers for $25,000.

He was returned to the Dodgers on March 22.

2009: His salary is $400,000, and he was recalled on May 22.  He was optioned to AAA on June 15, so he was on the MLB roster for 24 days.
$400,000 x 24/183 = $52,459

34) Juan Pierre: Traded to the White Sox on December 15, 2009.  Per Buster Olney of ESPN, the Dodgers are paying:

  • $7 million of his $10 million salary in 2010*
  • $3.5 million of his $8.5 million salary in 2011

*It is a little more complicated, as pointed out by Jon Paul Morosi of Fox Sports, "When they traded Juan Pierre to the White Sox, they transferred $3 million of Pierre’s 2010 salary into a bonus to be paid starting in 2012."

35) Andruw Jones: From a $17.1 million 2009 salary, Andruw's release "is expected to shave $12 million from the Dodgers' 2009 payroll and cut Jones' salary next season to about $5 million," (per Bill Shaikin) so I'm counting Andruw's 2009 base salary as $5.1 million.

Per Ken Gurnick, the Dodgers owe Jones $3.6 million in 2010, which would leave $13.5m remaining on his contract.  For purposes of this worksheet, I'm spreading that evenly over the four years remaining on his deferral ($3.375 milliion in each of 2011-2014).

Jones signed a minor league deal plus incentives with Texas; the Dodgers receive 50% of any salary earned with the Rangers.  The contract details (per Joel Sherman of the NY Post):
$500,000 salary if he makes the team
Andruw can opt out by March 20 if not on the 40-man roster
$75,000 for 340 plate appearances

$200,000 for winning AL Comeback Player of the Year award

$100,000 for winning AL MVP

$25,000 for winning Sliver Slugger award

36) Jason Schmidt: The breakdown of his three-year, $47 million contract (for the years 2007-2009) is as follows (per Tony Jackson):
2007: $12.5 million
2008: $15 million
2009: $16 million
2010: $2 million (payable in January 2010)
2011: $1.5 million (payable in January 2011)

$500,000 for 195 IP -- achieved September 15

Per Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times, $2 million of Wolf's incentives are deferred without interest.

Hudson collected all incentives except for $10,000 for falling one plate appearance short of 632.
*Beginning with 550 PA, each subsequent incentive is deferred without interest to a time not yet designated (again, I will count this for 2010 until I hear otherwise)

39) Russ Ortiz:  Signed a minor league deal for 2010 that will pay him $650,000 if in the majors.  "He can earn an additional $1.05 million in incentives based on number of games started and $150,000 based on relief appearances." (per Dylan Hernandez and Bill Shaikin).

The Dodgers purchased Ortiz's contract on April 5.  Ortiz was designated for assignment on April 18.  He declined a minor league assignment on April 22, electing to become a free agent.  Ortiz was a Dodger for 18 days: 
$650,000 x 18/183 = $63,934.

40) Will Ohman

2009: $1.35 million base salary plus incentives.  Technically a minor league deal, but "Ohman can opt out of the contract if he is not promoted by April 14." (per Dylan Hernandez)
$325,000 based on games pitched
$100,000 based on games finished

2010 option for $2.2 million ($2.3 million base with 80 games finished in 2009) plus incentives:
$375,000 based on games pitched
$100,000 based on games finished

The Dodgers declined the 2010 option for Ohman on October 16.

41) Jason Repko:

2010: signed a one-year deal for 2010 for $500,000, per Jon Paul Morosi of Fox Sports.  Repko also has $137,500 in incentives (per Tony Jackson):
$12,500 for 100 PA
$25,000 for 150 PA
$25,000 for 200 PA
$25,000 for 250 PA
$25,000 for 300 PA
$25,000 for 350 PA

Repko was released on April 2.  Because he was released within 15 days of opening day, Repko was paid 45 days termination pay: 
$500,000 x 45/183 = $122,951

2009: potential for $87,500 in incentives (per Tony Jackson)
$12,500 for 100 PA
$25,000 for 150 PA
$25,000 for 250 PA
$25,000 for 350 PA

42) Armando Zerpa:  He was acquired in the 2009 Rule 5 draft by the Rays from the Red Sox, then sold to the Dodgers for roughly $60,000 (per Dylan Hernandez)

Zerpa was reclaimed by the Red Sox on March 15.  The Dodgers received $25,000 (half the fee to draft a Rule 5 player) from Boston.

43) Eric Stults

2010: His major league salary was to be $410,000 (per Ken Gurnick), but he was sold to the Hiroshima Carp on April 3.  A source confirmed the Dodgers received $400,000 from the Carp for Stults.

2009: His salary is $402,000, and he was recalled on April 11.  He was optioned to AAA on July 2, so he was on the MLB roster for 82 days 
$402,000 x 82/183 = $180,131

He was recalled on August 9, and optioned to AAA on August 11, so he was on the MLB roster for 2 days. 
$402,000 x 2/183 = $4,393

44) Guillermo Mota

2009: potential for $300k in incentives (per Diamond Leung)
$75,000 for 30 games finished
$75,000 for 40 GF
$75,000 for 50 GF
$75,000 for 60 GF

$100,000 for 450 PA

46) Jim Thome

2009: traded by White Sox to Dodgers on August 31, with 34 days remaining in the regular season.  His contract called for $13 million for 2009.
$13,000,000 x 34/183 = $2,415,301

Bob Nightengale of USA Today reported the Dodgers are responsible for only $1 million, with the White Sox picking up the remaining $1,415,301

47) Juan Castro:

2010:  He signed a minor league deal on July 27, after being released by the Phillies.

His major league salary is estimated to be the major league minimum of $400,000, and his contract was purchased on August 11. He was designated for assignment on August 21; I am unsure of the date he was outrighted to Triple A (Castro didn't report for "personal issues"), but I am assuming that date was August 25, meaning he accrued 15 days of MLB salary. 
$400,000 x 15/183 = $32,787

2009: a minor league deal.  He will earn $700,000 in the majors and can ask for his release if not on the 40-man roster by June 30 (per Troy Renck of the Denver Post).

His major league salary is $700,000, and his contract was purchased on April 13, with 175 days remaining in the regular season. 
$700,000 x 175/183 = $669,399

If in the minors, Castro will earn $81,000.  Castro also has incentives of up to $175,000 (per the Associated Press):
$25,000 for 300 plate appearances
$25,000 for 350 PA
$25,000 for 400 PA
$50,000 for 450 PA
$50,000 for 500 PA

48) Eric Milton

2009: also on a minor league deal, Milton is vying for either the 5th starter spot or a bullpen role.  "If added to the 40-man roster, the pitcher would get a one-year contract calling for $650,000 in the majors and $72,000 in the minors. He could earn an additional $1.05 million based on starts five through 30, and $150,000 based on relief appearances 50 through 70." (per Associated Press)

His major league salary is $650,000, and he was recalled on May 15, with 143 days remaining in the regular season. 
$650,000 x 143/183 = $507,923

Per Cot's Contracts, Milton will also earn:
$50,000 for 5 games started - achieved June 27
$100,000 for 10 GS
$150,000 for 15 GS
$200,000 for 20 GS

$250,000 for 25 GS
$300,000 for 30 GS

$50,000 for 50 relief appearances
$50,000 for 60 relief appearances
$50,000 for 70 relief appearances

49) Doug Mientkiewicz;

2009: signed a minor league deal, and made $550,000 by making the club, plus an additional $200,000 in incentives based on plate appearances.  "If Mientkiewicz isn't on the 25-man roster by April 6, the Dodgers would have to grant him his request for a release or add him the major-league roster within six hours" (per Dylan Hernandez)

50) Claudio Vargas

2009: potential for an additional $1.4 million in incentives (confirmed via email from Tony Jackson):
$50,000 for 5 games started
$50,000 for 10 GS

$150,000 for 15 GS
$200,000 for 20 GS
$250,000 for 25 GS
$300,000 for 30 GS

$50,000 for 1 day on 25-man roster* - achieved July 3
$50,000 for 60 days on 25-man roster*
$100,000 for 90 days on 25-man roster*

$100,000 for 120 days on 25-man roster*
$100,000 for 150 days on 25-man roster*
*Time on active roster includes DL time for injuries other than to right elbow.

Vargas was traded to Milwaukee on July 31, meaning he was a Dodger (including time on the disabled list) for 118 days. 
$400,000 x 118/183 = $257,923

Any remaining incentives Vargas might achieve while with Milwaukee will be paid by the Brewers.

51) Mitch Jones

2009: His salary is $400,000, and his contract was purchased on June 16, and was designated for assignment on July 2, so he was on the MLB roster for 16 days.  He gets credit for the 10-day DFA period, which pushes the total service time to 26 days.
$400,000 x 26/183 = $56,831

52) Delwyn Young

2009: His salary is $406,000, and he was traded to Pittsburgh on April 14, meaning he was a Dodger for a total of 10 days. 
$406,000 x 10/183 = $22,186

53) Tony Abreu

2009: His salary is $400,000, and he was called up on August 7.  He was optioned to AAA on August 9, meaning he was on the MLB roster for 2 days. 
$400,000 x 2/183 = $4,372

He was recalled on August 19, and optioned to AAA on August 27, so he was on the MLB roster for 8 days. 
$400,000 x 8/183 = $17,486

Abreu was sent to the Diamondbacks as the player to be named later on October 9, to complete the August 31 trade for Jon Garland.

54) Jon Garland

Signed a one-year contract on November 26, with a vesting club option for 2012. Details per Dylan Hernandez of the LA Times:

$1 million signing bonus, to be paid in 2012
2011: $3.5 million base salary, plus performance bonuses:

$500,000 for 150 IP
$500,000 for 160 IP
$525,000 for 170 IP
$1,000,000 for 180 IP
$1,000,000 for 190 IP


2012: $8 million club option, which vests if Garland pitches "190 innings and avoid landing on the disabled list in September because of an injury to his right arm" in 2011. If the option doesn't vest, the Dodgers can exercise the option or pay Garland a $500,000 buyout. The 2012 contract also has performance bonuses:

$250,000 for 185 IP
$250,000 for 190 IP

2009: traded by Diamondbacks to Dodgers on August 31, with 34 days remaining in the regular season.  His contract called for $6.25 million for 2009.
$6,250,000 x 34/183 = $1,161,202

Garland also has a $10 million mutual option for 2010.  If the Dodgers decline the option, the buyout is $2.5 million.  If Garland declines the option, the buyout is $1 million.  Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reported the Diamondbacks are paying all of Garland's remaining salary for 2009, as well as any option buyout, so the total paid by Garland will be between $2,161,202 and $3,661,202.

The Dodgers declined the $10 million option for 2010 on November 5.

55) Nick Green

2010:  He signed a minor league contract worth $550,000 while in the majors, plus a potential for $100,000 in incentives.  His contract was purchased on May 4, and he was designated for assignment on May 28.  Green accepted a minor league assignment on June 5, meaning he was gets credit for 32 days of service time. 
$550,000 x 32/183 = $96,175

56) Justin Miller

2010:  He signed a minor league deal.  Per Dylan Hernandez of the LA Times, Miller will earn $850,000 if in the majors with a potential for $50,000 in incentives.

Miller had his contract purchased on May 27, and was designated for assignment on July 23. He was outrighted to Triple A on July 28, meaning he gets credit for 63 days of major league service time. 
$850,000 x 63/183 = $292,623

57) Ramon Troncoso

2010:  His salary is $416,000, and he was optioned to Triple A on July 3, meaning he was on the big league roster for 90 days. 
$416,000 x 90/183 = $204,590

Troncoso was recalled on August 3, and was optioned to Triple A on August 9, meaning he was on the big league roster for 6 days. 
$416,000 x 6/183 = $13,639

Troncoso was recalled on August 30, with 35 days remaining in the regular season. 
$416,000 x 35/183 = $79,563

58) Jack Taschner

2010:  His salary is estimated to be $400,000, and had his contract purchased on July 21. He was designated for assignment on July 29. For now, I am assuming he get credit for the full 10 days during the DFA period, making his last day on the roster is August 7, meaning he gets credit for 18 days of service time. 
$400,000 x 18/183 = $39,344

59) Kenley Jansen

2010:  His salary is estimated to be $400,000, and he was recalled on July 23, with 73 days left in the regular season. 
$400,000 x 73/183 = $159,563

60) Scott Podsednik

2010:  He was acquired from Kansas City on July 28 for Lucas May and Elisaul Pimentel.

His salary is $1.75 million, and the Dodgers are on the hook for 67 days left in the regular season. 
$1,750,000 x 67/183 = $640,710

Podsednik also has a $2 million option for 2011, with a $100,000 buyout. He can void the option with 525 plate appearances in 2010.

The Dodgers exercised the 2011 option on November 2. If Podsednik declines, he does not get the $100,000 buyout, per the Associated Press. Podsednik declined the option on November 4, 2010.

61) Ryan Theriot

2010: He was acquired with Ted Lilly from the Cubs on July 31 for Blake DeWitt, Brett Wallach, and Kyle Smit.

His salary is $2,600,000, and the Dodgers are on the hook for 64 days left in the regular season. 
$2,600,000 x 64/183 = $909,290

Theriot is arbitration eligible in 2011 and 2012.

62) Octavio Dotel

2010:  He was acquired from Pittsburgh on July 31 for James McDonald and Andrew Lambo.

His salary is $3,250,000. Dotel was subsequently traded to the Rockies on September 18, so he was with the Dodgers for 48 days. 
$3,250,000 x 48/183 = $852,459

In addition, the Dodgers and Rockies are splitting Dotel's salary for the remaining 16 days left in the regular season. 
$3,250,000 x 16/183 = $284,153 / 2 = $142,077

They are also splitting Dotel's $250,000 buyout of his $4.5 million 2011 mutual option.

The Pirates also paid the Dodgers $500,000 to cover part of Dotel's salary.

63) Ted Lilly

Lilly signed a three-year, $33 million contract on October 19, 2010, covering seasons 2011-2013. The payout, per Beth Harris of the Associated Press:

  • 2011: $7.5 million ($7m salary + $500k bonus)
  • 2012: $12 million ($10.5m salary + $1.5m bonus)
  • 2013: $13.5 million ($12m salary + $1.5m bonus)

The $3.5 million signing bonus is spread out over three seasons, payable in installments on April 1 of 2011, 2012, and 2013.

Lilly also has a full no-trade clause for 2011 and 2012.

2010:  He was acquired with Ryan Theriot from the Cubs on July 31 for Blake DeWitt, Brett Wallach, and Kyle Smit.

His salary is $12,000,000, and the Dodgers are on the hook for 64 days left in the regular season. 
$12,000,000 x 64/183 = $4,196,721

The Cubs also paid $2.5 million to the Dodgers as part of the trade, and I have subtracted that from Lilly's 2010 salary.

64) Jay Gibbons

2011: On November 4, 2010, Gibbons signed a one-year deal for $650,000 plus $150,000 in incentives. However, the MLB minimum is likely to rise in 2011 based on the CPI-W.

2010:  He signed a minor league deal, and I am estimating the salary to be $500,000.

His contract was purchased on August 8, with 57 days left in the regular season. 
$500,000 x 57/183 = $155,738

65) Rod Barajas

2010:  His contract with the Mets called for a base salary of $500,000, with $1 million in unknown incentives.

He was claimed off waivers by the Dodgers from the Mets on August 22, with 43 days left in the regular season. 
$500,000 x 43/183 = $117,486

66) John Lindsey

2010:  His contract was purchased by the Dodgers on September 6, with 28 days left in the regular season. 
$400,000 x 28/183 = $61,202

67) Russ Mitchell

2010:  His contract was purchased by the Dodgers on September 6, with 28 days left in the regular season. 
$400,000 x 28/183 = $61,202

68) Trent Oeltjen

2010:  His contract was purchased by the Dodgers on September 7, with 27 days left in the regular season. 
$400,000 x 27/183 = $59,016
