Twins 2011 Payroll Estimate #1

This estimate reflects only players who are currently under team control for the 2011 season. It does not include any speculation on players who will be signed via free agency or those who will be acquired via trade. This list will change as the off season progress, and players are acquired, or lost.

The positions in many cases are speculative. If I pencil in a player at a position who did not start there in 2010, it may be because I simply feel he would be the most qualified should 2011 begin today. It does not mean I expect the team to enter the 2011 season with said player manning that positon, so don't read into it too much.

An asterisk denotes an arbitration eligible player and my estimate at what they'll receive. Please note that this is not an exact figure, but should be close.

  1. The main benefit of payroll services for any business is that the cost of using a payroll service can be less for small to medium businesses that using staff members to handle accounting requirements. Using a CPA who is on staff does make sure that the payroll is completed correctly, but requires paying a high salary in order to have this benefit.
