Salaries for the 0-3 Yankees

When a player has 0-3 years of service time, there is no bargaining for a contract. You are guaranteed only the minimum — which is $400,000 this year.

The Yankees, like most teams, have a salary scale for 0-3 players based on service time rather than performance. In most cases, the players just accept the offer and sign. In some cases, a player will refuse and the team renews his deal at a figure they set. That’s what happened with Joba Chamberlain last season.

The 0-3 players have two salaries in their contracts, one if they’re in the majors and another if they are in the minors. Minor-league salaries can be as low as $32,600 or significantly higher depending on how much major-league experience the player has.

Here is what the Yankees did for their 0-3 players:

Cody Ransom $455,100
Joba Chamberlain: $433,000
Jose Veras: $432,975
Edwar Ramirez: $422,450
Dan Giese $422,250
Brett Gardner $414,000
Ian Kennedy: $408,925
Phil Hughes: $407,650
David Robertson: $406,825
Alfredo Aceves: $406,750
Jonathan Albaladejo: $403,075
Phil Coke: $403,300
Francisco Cervelli: $400,700
Wilkin De La Rosa: $400,000
Anthony Claggett: $400,000
Michael Dunn: $400,000
Christian Garcia: $400,000
Eric Hacker: $400,000
Steven Jackson: $400,000
