* — Minaya and Arraez don't have three years of service time required for salary arbitration, but may qualify as "super-twos," among the top 22% of players with more than two years but less than three and who are also allowed to file for arbitration. Minaya is likely to qualify, and Arraez might; if they do not, their salaries will be much closer to the MLB minimum.

** — Next season's minimum salary is being negotiated in the new Collective Bargaining Agreement. Estimate of $575,000 per player, an increase over the 2021 minimum of $570,500, is included in these projections.
