Pitcher Contracts, Classified

Yesterday, I classified every contract for a position player currently on a 40-man roster. Today we turn our attention to the pitchers.

As of Sunday night, April 6th, there were 613 pitchers on a 40-man roster. Many pitchers with season-long injuries are on their team’s 60-day disabled list and have been moved off the 40-man roster. This includes Matt Harvey, Patrick Corbin, Derek Holland and Cory Luebke, to name a few. You won’t see those names below and I have not included them in the 612-pitcher total.

Before we get to the tables, here are the highlights:

  • There are six pitchers with pre-arbitration contracts that extend through the arbitration years, with team options into free agency (Martin Perez, Chris Archer, Matt Moore, Brett Anderson, Jose Quintana and James Shields).
  • There are four pitchers with pre-arbitration contracts that extend into free agency, with team options for additional free agent years (Madison Bumgarner, Julio Teheran, Jon Niese and Chris Sale).
  • There are seven pitchers with pre-arbitration contracts (Trevor Bauer, Charlie Furbush, Danny Hultzen, Jacob Turner, Matt Purke, Dylan Bundy and Gerrit Cole).
  • There are 357 pre-arbitration pitchers without multi-year contracts.
  • There are 21 pitchers with contracts that began in their arbitration years, extend into their free agent years and include club options.
  • There are three pitchers with contracts that began in their arbitration years and extend into their free agent years, but do not have club options (Clayton Kershaw, Jered Weaver and John Danks). 
  • There are eight pitchers with contracts that began in their arbitration years, extended into their free agent years, and then were extended again for additional free agent years (Justin Verlander, Felix Hernandez, Matt Cain, Adam Wainwright, Josh Beckett, Glen Perkins, Jake Peavy and Sean Marshall).
  • There are five pitchers with contracts that cover the arbitration years and on which the team has a club option for one or more free agent years (Trevor Cahill, Casey Janssen, Sergio Santos, Josh Collmenter and Clay Buchholz).
  • There are 88 pitchers on year-to-year arbitration contracts.
  • There are 117 pitchers on free agent contracts. Of those, 10 re-signed with the same team.

Again, as with yesterday, what is the distinction between Ian Desmond’s contract and Jordan Zimmermann’s? They are classified differently Desmond as “Arb contract through arb years” and Zimmermann as “Arb contract.”

Could you explain why there is a difference? This was the same question as with Heyward’s contract in the article yesterday.

An arbitration contract is, by definition, a one-year deal.

An arbitration contract thru arb years would be a multi-year deal that covers all arbitration years but does not extend to free agent seasons, either through guaranteed years or team/player/mutual options.

I imagine there may yet be another type, which would be an arbitration contract that is a multi-year deal that does not extend thru the entirety of arbitration. Cole Hamels had this type of deal, as his contract covered all but the last of his arbitration seasons.
