NOTES: Numbers in italics are option years. All options are assumed to be team options unless noted differently below. Guaranteed money includes guaranteed years plus option buyouts. Total includes the base value of contracts for that year, assuming all options are picked up. It does not include bonuses or escalators. The first year of arbitration is an estimate since pre-arb players can gain arbitration early as a "Super Two" player who has less than 3 years of service time.

Contract notes:

  • Arroyo's 2011 option has a $2 million buyout. It can also escalate to $13 million based on innings pitched in 2010.
  • Coffey can earn $600k in performance bonuses in 2008.
  • Harang's 2011 option has a $2 million buyout. It can also escalate to $13 million based on innings pitched in 2010. If he's traded, the option becomes a mutual option and escalates to $14 million with a $2.5 million buyout.
  • Stanton's 2009 option has a $500k buyout. The option becomes guaranteed at $2.75 million if he pitches in 71 games in 2008.
  • Weathers will earn as much as $800k more than listed in 2008 based on bonuses received for finishing 60 games in 2007. He could receive even more bonuses for finishing at least 35 games in 2008.
  • Ross's 2009 option has a $375k buyout.
  • Castro's 2009 option has a $100k buyout
  • Gonzalez's 2010 option has a $500k buyout. If he wins a gold glove in 2008, his 2009 salaray increases to $5.5 million.
  • Dunn has a full no trade clause thru 6/15/2008 after which he must select at least 10 teams to whom he would accept a trade.
  • Griffey's 2009 option has a $4 million buyout.
  • Cordero's contract has a $500k signing bonus which has been applied to the 2008 payroll, though this may not be how the Reds account for it. He has a $12 million option for 2012 with a $1 million buyout. He has a complete no trade clause for 2008 and 2009 with a limited no trade clause for the remainder of the contract beyond that.
  • Affeldt can earn $1 million in performance bonuses based on starts and innings pitched
  • Phillips has a team option worth $12 million for 2012 with a $1 million buyout. If he's traded, the option becomes mutual. Each year of his contract has escalators, which can be found here.
