For most players, arbitration eligibility is their first shot at a million-dollar salary.  Let’s go around the diamond and look at the potential notable first-timers for 2012.  I’ve included some potential Super Twos, based on the possibility of the cutoff being in the range of two years and 120 days.

… Second Basemen

Gordon Beckham of the White Sox might be the most interesting name here, if service time of 2.123 results in Super Two status.

Beckham’s service time stands at 1.123 at the moment.

The MLBPA says:

Q: When does a player become eligible for salary arbitration?

A: A player with three or more years of service, but less than six years, may file for salary arbitration. In addition, a player can be classified as a “Super Two” and be eligible for arbitration with less than three years of service. A player with at least two but less than three years of Major League service shall be eligible for salary arbitration if he has accumulated at least 86 days of service during the immediately preceding season and he ranks in the top 17 percent in total service in the class of Players who have at least two but less than three years of Major League service, however accumulated, but with at least 86 days of service accumulated during the immediately preceding season.
