Dodgers payroll

Kirby Lee-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

A detailed breakdown of Dodgers' salaries and contract information.

Here is the Dodgers payroll worksheet, for 2011-2014. For older details (2008-2010), click here. Keep in mind, this is a fluid spreadsheet that will change as the season goes on. A full season of salary is earned over 183 days (March 30 through September 28 in 2011, April 4 through October 3 in 2012). Any players currently on the active roster or disabled list will be assumed to be on the roster for the remainder of the year.

In the offseason, some roster spots will be temporarily filled by players on the 40-man roster, with estimated salaries. Again, this is an ongoing, fluid spreadsheet, so remember to check back often for the latest update

For a couple of great resources on MLB contracts, go to Jeff Euston's Cot's Baseball Contracts and the USA Today payroll database (dating back to 1988; 2012 Dodgers are here). For the worksheet below, you can click on the player name for more details on each player.

Ryu will get a $5 million signing bonus, per Tim Brown of Yahoo! Sports ($2.5 million payable on Apr. 1, 2013; $2.5 million on Apr. 1, 2014, per the AP).

The annual breakdown per Dylan Hernandez of the LA Times:

2014: $3.5 million
2015: $4.5 million

Hernandez also reported that Ryu's base salary could increase based upon Cy Young Award balloting, and Ryu cannot be sent to the minors without his written consent.

$1 million for winning
$750,000 for finishing 2nd

Per the AP, "Ryu gets a $30,000 moving allowance, eight annual first-class round-trip tickets from Los Angeles to South Korea, an employee assigned to Korean media needs, and interpreter, a personal trainer/massage therapist, English lessons and payment for immigration fees." In addition, Ryu's contract "allows him access to purchase premium tickets. He gets a suite on the road but pays the difference between the cost of a suite and a regular room."

Zack Greinke:

Greinke agreed to a six-year contract worth $147 million on Dec. 8, 2012.

Jim Bowden of ESPN and XM Radio broke down the payment schedule:

2013: $17 million
2014: $24 million
2015: $23 million
2016: $24 million
2017: $23 million
2018: $24 million

If Greinke pitches 1,000 innings from 2013-2017, Greinke's 2018 base salary increases by $2 million, to $26 million.

If Greinke wins the Cy Young Award in any year of the contract, his base salary the following year increases by $1 million (if he wins it in 2018, he gets a $1 million bonus). If Greinke finishes second through fifth in balloting, the bonus is $500,000.

Greinke does not have a no-trade clause in the contract, but can opt out of his contract at the end of any year that he is traded (within three days after the World Series ends). In addition, he receives a $3 million bonus if traded.

Per the AP, "Greinke also has the right to purchase four premium tickets for all home games."

$491,000 x 10/183 = $26,831

2012: Federowicz was recalled from Triple A Albuquerque on September 1, with 33 days left in the regular season.
$480,000 x 33/183 = $86,557

2012: Sellers will make $481,000.

Sellers was optioned to Triple A Albuquerque on May 4, but was recalled on week later on May 11 to replace the injured Jerry Hairston Jr.. Because his option lasted less than 10 days, it's as if the option never happened, and Sellers gets major league pay and service time for the week he was away.

$414,000 x 48/183 = $108,590

Eovaldi was recalled on May 29, then was traded to Miami along with minor league right-handed pitcher Scott McGough for Hanley Ramirez and Randy Choate on July 25, meaning he was with the Dodgers for 57 days left in the regular season.

2011: Eovaldi had his contract purchased from Double A Chattanooga on August 6, making his MLB debut, with 54 days left in the regular season.

Andre Ethier

2013-2017: Ethier signed a five-year extension on June 12, 2012 worth a guaranteed $85 million. The deal also has a vesting option for a sixth season, based on plate appearances in 2017 or 2016-2017, that could bring the total value of the deal to $100 million. The payout:

2013: $13.5 million
2014: $15.5 million
2015: $18 million
2016: $18 million
2017: $17.5 million
2018: $17.5 million (or $2.5 million buyout)

2012: signed a one-year deal worth $10.95 million on January 17, 2012, plus incentives, avoiding salary arbitration. Ethier can earn up to $50,000 in performance bonuses based on plate appearances:

$25,000 for 600 PA
$25,000 for 625 PA

2010: 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 (he didn't) would have also added 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!
)
$50,000 for 650 PA -- achieved September 23

Xavier Paul:

2011: Paul will earn $419,500 per Dylan Hernandez of the LA Times.

The Dodgers designated Paul for assignment on April 18. Paul was claimed by the Pirates on April 26, meaning he was on the Dodgers for 27 days:
$419,500 x 27/183 = $61,893

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

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):
2010
$25,000 for 275 PA - achieved August 5
$50,000 for 300 PA - achieved August 12
$50,000 for 350 PA - achieved August 27

$75,000 for 400 PA - achieved September 19
$75,000 for 450 PA
$125,000 for 500 PA

$50,000 for 350 PA - achieved July 30
$75,000 for 400 PA - achieved August 18
$75,000 for 450 PA - achieved September 1
$125,000 for 500 PA -- achieved September 25

$125,000 for 550 PA

A.J. Ellis:

2013: Ellis signed a one-year, $2 million contract on Jan. 18, avoiding salary arbitration.

2012: Ellis will earn $490,000, per Dylan Hernandez of the LA Times

2011: Ellis will earn $421,000, per Dylan Hernandez of the LA Times.

Ellis was on the opening day roster, then optioned to Albuquerque on April 25, meaning he was with the club for 26 days.
$421,000 x 26/183 = $59,814

Ellis was recalled on June 19, then optioned on July 14, so he was with the club for 25 days.
$421,000 x 25/183 = $57,514

Ellis was recalled on August 23, with 37 days left in the regular season.
$421,000 x 37/183 = $85,120

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

Vicente Padilla:

2011: Padilla signed a a one-year, $2 million deal for 2011, plus incentives, on December 9, 2010. His 2011 salary also includes $1 million deferred signing bonus from 2010 contract. The performance bonuses are plentiful for Padilla, as he can earn up to $6.8 million in relief bonuses, or up to $8 (or $9) million in starting bonuses (per Ken Gurnick of MLB.com):

$250,000 for 40 games pitched in relief
$250,000 for 50 games pitched in relief
$500,000 for 60 games pitched in relief
$500,000 for 70 games pitched in relief
$500,000 for 80 games pitched in relief
$750,000 for 30 games finished
$750,000 for 35 games finished
$750,000 for 40 games finished
$750,000 for 45 games finished
$750,000 for 50 games finished
$750,000 for 55 games finished
$150,000 for 35 games in which "which he enters games with the Dodgers leading by three or fewer runs"
$150,000 for 45 games in which "which he enters games with the Dodgers leading by three or fewer runs"
$1 million for 12 starts and 70 innings pitched as a starter (not sure if this is $1 million for each, or $1 million for both)
$1 million for 15 starts
$1 million for 18 starts
$1 million for 21 starts
$1 million for 24 starts
$1 million for 27 starts
$1 million for 30 starts
$1 million for 33 starts

All the incentives are deferred without interest, to an unspecified date. For purposes of this worksheet, I am assuming the incentives, if reached, will be paid in 2012.

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

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 (deferred signing bonus)
2013: $2 million (deferred signing bonus)

In addition, Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports reports that Kuroda has a full no-trade clause.

For 2011, Kuroda also has bonuses of up to $500,000, per Ken Gurnick of MLB.com:

$125,000 for 180 innings -- achieved September 11
$175,000 for 190 innings -- achieved September 22
$200,000 for 200 innings -- achieved September 27

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

$7.3 million signing bonus, spread over three seasons
2008: $7.6 million ($5 million base salary plus $2.6 million of signing bonus)
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)

John Ely:

2012: I am estimating Ely's salary at $490,000

Ely had his contract selected from Triple A Albuquerque on September 1, with 33 days left in the regular season.
$490,000 x 33/183 = $88,361

2011: Ely will earn $418,000 per Dylan Hernandez of the LA Times.

Ely was recalled from Triple A on Sunday, April 10, and optioned back to Triple A on April 11, meaning he acquired one day of service time.
$418,000 x 1/183 = $2,284

Ely was recalled from Triple A on Saturday, June 4, and was optioned on June 6, so he was with the big club for two days.
$418,000 x 2/183 = $4,568

Ely was recalled on August 1, and was optioned after the game on August 5, so he was with the big club for five days:
$418,000 x 5/183 = $11,421

Ely was recalled on September 6, with 23 days left in the regular season.
$418,000 x 23/183 = $52,536

Ely was outrighted to Triple A on Nov. 18, removing him from the 40-man roster.

2010: Ely's 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

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

Hong-Chih Kuo:

Kuo was non-tendered on December 12, 2011, making him a free agent.

2011: Kuo signed a one-year contract worth $2.725 million on February 2, 2011. Kuo can also receive up to $700,000 in incentives (per Tony Jackson of ESPN LA):

$25,000 for 50 games pitched
$25,000 for 55 games pitched
$50,000 for 60 games pitched
$100,000 for 30 games finished
$100,000 for 35 games finished
$100,000 for 40 games finished
$100,000 for 45 games finished
$100,000 for 50 games finished
$100,000 for 55 games finished

Kuo filed for salary arbitration, exchanging salary figures with the Dodgers on January 18, 2011. Kuo asked for $3.075 million, while the club filed at $2.55 million.

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

Ronald Belisario:

2013: Belisario signed a one-year, $1.45 million contract on Jan. 18, avoiding salary arbitration.

Belisario can earn an additional $50,000 if he pitches in 70 games, per Ken Gurnick of MLB.com.

2012: Belisario will earn the league minimum of $480,000, but won't be paid during his 25-game suspension to start the season. Subtracting 25 days of pay from the 183-day season, we get:
$480,000 x 158/183 = $414,426

2011: Belisario failed to report to spring training, unable to get a work visa from Venezuela. He was placed on the restricted list, where he remained all season.

2010: His 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

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

There is a ton of deferred money in this contract, and the total payout of Manny's salary will be as follows (much thanks to Tony Jackson):
2009: $7,267,760 ($10m base, less suspension)
2010: $7,267,760 ($10m deferred from 2009, less suspension)
2011: $7,677,596 ($5m deferred from 2009, less suspension, plus $5m deferred from 2010, less CWS portion)
2012: $8,087,432 (deferred from 2010, less CWS portion)
2013: $4,043,716 (deferred from 2010, less CWS portion)

Brad Ausmus: signed a one-year deal on January 26, 2010 with an mutual option for 2011:
2010: $850,000 base salary, plus $100,000 in incentives (per Dylan Hernandez):
Annually (2010-2011)
$50,000 for 150 PA
$50,000 for 175 PA
$50,000 for 200 PA
$50,000 for 225 PA
2011: $1 million mutual option; if either side declines option, buyout is $150,000.

2009: potential for $350,000 in incentives (confirmed via email from Tony Jackson):
$25,000 for 150 PA
$25,000 for 175 PA
$25,000 for 200 PA
$25,000 for 225 PA
$25,000 for 250 PA
$25,000 for 300 PA
$50,000 for 350 PA
$50,000 for 400 PA
$100,000 for 450 PA

Jon Link

2011: Link will earn $414,500 per Dylan Hernandez of the LA Times.

2010: Link's 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

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

Travis Schlichting:

2011: Schlichting will earn $415,000 per Dylan Hernandez of the LA Times.

Schlichting was designated for assignment on May 29.

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

Jamie Hoffmann:

Hoffmann was claimed on waivers by the Colorado Rockies on December 5, 2011.

2011: I don't have Hoffmann's salary, but I am estimating it to be $415,000.

Hoffmann was recalled from Triple A on Monday, April 11, and was optioned after the game on Thursday, April 14, so Hoffmann was with the club for a total of 4 days.
$415,000 x 4/183 = $9,071

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

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."

The Dodgers' bankruptcy filing in 2011 included Pierre as an unsecured creditor still owed $3,050,000, so it appears the cost for converting $3 million of 2010 salary into a bonus in 2012 was $50,000 to Pierre.

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
$75,000 for 380 PA

$125,000 for 540 PA
$175,000 for 580 PA
$175,000 for 620 PA

$50,000 for being an AL All-Star
$25,000 for winning ALCS MVP
$50,000 for winning World Series MVP
$200,000 for winning AL Comeback Player of the Year award

$100,000 for winning AL MVP
$25,000 for winning Gold Glove award
$25,000 for winning Sliver Slugger award

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)

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 up to $3.525 million in 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

Per Hernandez, "If he pitches 190 innings, $1 million of his incentive pay will be deferred without interest."


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

The Dodgers declined their 2012 option on Garland on October 4, 2011.

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.

Ramon Troncoso:

2011: Troncoso will earn $442,000 per Dylan Hernandez of the LA Times.

Troncoso was recalled on April 16, then was optioned after the game on April 21, meaning he was with the club for 6 days.
$442,000 x 6/183 = $14,492

Troncoso was recalled on May 19, then was optioned on June 19, meaning he was with the club for 31 days.
$442,000 x 31/183 = $74,874

Troncoso was recalled on September 4, with 25 days left in the regular season.
$442,000 x 25/183 = $60,383

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

Kenley Jansen:

2013: Jansen will make $512,000, per Dylan Hernandez of the LA Times.

2012: Jansen's salary in 2012 is $491,000, per Tony Jackson of ESPN LA.

2011: His salary in 2011 is $416,000, per Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times.

Jansen was optioned to Double A Chattanooga on May 1, but he was recalled on May 6 to replace the injured Jonathan Broxton, so Jansen gets credit for service time as if he was never sent down.

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

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.

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.

Jay Gibbons:

2011: On November 4, 2010, Gibbons signed a one-year deal for $650,000 plus $150,000 in incentives. The contract is guaranteed for only the MLB minimum (which is now $414,500), per Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times, meaning the remainder of $235,500 would likely become guaranteed once Gibbons makes the team out of spring training.

Gibbons' full $650,000 contract became guaranteed on March 28.

Gibbons has $150,000 in performance bonuses as well (per Dylan Hernandez):
$50,000 for 300 PA
$50,000 for 400 PA
$50,000 for 500 PA

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

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

Russ Mitchell:

Mitchell was designated for assignment on February 6, 2012, to make room on the 40-man roster for Todd Coffey.

2011: I don't have his salary for 2011, but I am assuming it to be $414,500.

Mitchell was recalled by the Dodgers on April 29, and then optioned to Triple A on May 27, meaning he was with the club for 28 days.
$414,500 x 28/183 = $63,421

Mitchell was recalled by the Dodgers on September 1, with 28 days left in the regular season.
$414,500 x 28/183 = $63,421

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

Trent Oeltjen:

2011: I don't have his salary for 2011, but I am assuming it to be $414,000.

Oeltjen's contract was purchased by the Dodgers on June 9, with 112 days left in the regular season.
$414,000 x 112/183 = $253,377

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
