A.J. Ellis & Ronald Belisario Avoid Arbitration

It should probably say a lot about how badly we want news right now that this is a tweet we’ve actually been waiting for:

Ellis made slightly more than the $1.7m Matt Swartz of MLBTR had projected for him, and though that’s still far less than he’d get as a true free agent, $2m is still a pretty big raise from the $490k he got last year. Honestly, I wouldn’t have minded seeing him get a two year deal, but this is fine. Belisario wasn’t included in the projections and should probably just be happy he’s getting paid in American money and not in cigarettes or whatever passes for currency at the county prison.

With the salaries set, we can turn Ellis & Belisario from blue to green on the payroll sheet. By my count, I have them at $229.79m in 2013 contracts; including all outlays — dead money, minimum salaries, posting fee, etc — that’s $271.49m. It’s a fun time.
