MLB Trade Rumors provides salary estimates for arbitration-eligible Royals players

This off-season could be a year of transition for the Royals, with a new owner, a new manager, and possibly some new players on the field after back-to-back 100+ loss seasons. New owner John Sherman will take over a team that has already shed some of its big financial obligations, and have just $60 million on salary obligations for contracts in 2020, compared to an Opening Day payroll of $100 million in 2019.

Those salary obligations don’t count players eligible for arbitration, who will have to negotiate new deals with the Royals, but not with the benefit of the free agent market.
