  • Ryan Ludwick contract question....

    He seems to have MLB service for pieces of seasons going back a ways. FA after this season? Arby-eligible? For how long if so?

    Thanks.

      So a little over 2 years MLB service...I know some of the rules are arcane, but I think that makes him arbitration eligible after this season, and thus for the next two beyond?

        it's still early, but it's not hard to imagine 3 long-term starting outfielders out of Ankiel, Ludwick, Schu, Rasmus and Mather. Exciting times.

          A player is eligible for salary arbitration if he:
          1. is ineligible for free agency
          2. is without a contract
          3. cannot agree with his current team on a new contract
          4. has been on a major league roster or disabled list for at least three years
          "Super Two" exception[3] - A player with at least two years of experience may be eligible for salary arbitration if he:
          1. Meets the first three requirements from above
          2. Played in the majors for at least 86 days in the previous season
          3. Is among the top 17 percent for cumulative playing time in the majors amongst others with at least 2 years, but less than 3 years experience
          In this process, the player and the team both submit a salary offer for a new contract; the arbitrator chooses one number or the other, whichever is thought to be most "fair" given comparable wages among players with similar ability and service time. Players thus rely on arbitration and free agency to increase their salaries.

            So he was ineligible at the start of this season due to service time.

            He'll be eligible at the end of the season.

            Are the number of years he's under arbitration before FA eligibility reduced by his age?

              1st year arb after this year. So not FA-elgible until after the 2011 season.

                    He should mention that to Troy Glaus.

                      Very good news to hear. Can keep him around on the cheap the next couple years and see what they have with him.

                      Remember, this is only a 6-7 week spurt to the start the season and you don't usually see guys his age magically become superstars for a prolonged period of time.
