Over the weekend, the Twins avoided arbitration with both Brian Duensing and Jordan Schafer. Now that all is said and done, arbitration-eligible players will be making $14,225,000 in 2015. How does that affect the team's payroll outlook?

Pos Player Salary
SP1 Phil Hughes $9.20 MM
SP2 Ervin Santana $13.50 MM
SP3 Ricky Nolasco $12.00 MM
SP4 Kyle Gibson $0.51 MM
SP5 Tommy Milone $2.775 MM

Set-up Casey Fien $1.375 MM
MR1 Brian Duensing $2.70 MM
MR2 J.R. Graham $0.51 MM
MR3 Caleb Thielbar $0.52 MM
MR4 Tim Stauffer $2.20 MM
Long Mike Pelfrey $5.50 MM

Bench OF Jordan Schafer $1.55 MM
Bench UT Eduardo Nunez $1.025 MM
Bench total $3.605 MM
25-man roster $105.965 MM

In terms of history, this constitutes the second-highest payroll that the organization has put forward. 2011's roster saw the team slide in at just over $113 million, and 2012's team would now be the third-highest in team history at just over $100 million. Salary figures for pre-arbitration players, such as Brian Dozier or Kyle Gibson or Josmil Pinto, is based off of an incremental raise from what the player received in 2014.
