Baseball-Reference adds player contract and team payroll information

Player Contracts — Working with Paul Riker of Fan-Exchange.com, we have added contract information for nearly every active player in the major leagues. Roy Oswalt, Adrian Gonzalez and J.A. Happ, for example, now have information at the top of the page below their bio information like 2011 contract status, service time (through end of 2009), contract summaries with options included, earliest FA and Arb-eligibility, and their agents.

This data also appears stretched out on the Player Salaries section at the bottom of each player’s front page. So you can now see just how much Ryan Howard has coming to him in 2015.

On the Team Payroll and Roster Pages (NYY, PHI, ARI) we show the current contract status of most of the players with the team, especially those signed to long-term deals. At the bottom of these tables, we have tried out best to summarize the team’s financial situation in future years, and using our “SHARE” tool (which appears above every table on the site–just click it to start) you can generate tables like this to add to your blog, newsgroup, forum, etc.

Here is the White Sox payroll page and the salary section of Alex Rios’ page.

That’s a very useful feature. Thanks B-R!
