What the Astros will make in 2010

With several players still waiting on contracts for 2010, most notably Hunter Pence and Wandy Rodriguez, I’ve compiled a list at what each player will make in 2010. Remember, thre are still a handful of younger players who have yet to have their 2010 contracts renewed, also.

I have estimated what Pence, Rodriguez and Tim Byrdak could make this year, based on the arbitration numbers that were submitted Tuesday. I split them right down the middle, which a good starting point for negotiations.

These numbers do not include any incentives or performance bonuses.

Carlos Lee: $18.5 million

Roy Oswalt: $15 million

Lance Berkman: $14.5 million

*Wandy Rodriguez: $6 million (has not finalized a contract; he wants $7 million and club is offering $5 million)

Brett Myers: $5.1 million (includes $2 million buyout)

Kaz Matsui: $5 million

Pedro Feliz: $4.5 million

Brandon Lyon: $4.25 million

*Hunter Pence: $3.6 million (has not finalized a contract; he wants $4.1 million and club is offering $3.1 million)

Brian Moehler: $3 million 

Michael Bourn: $2.4 million 

Matt Lindstrom: $1.625 million 

*Tim Byrdak: $1.6 million (has not finalized a contract; he wants $1.9 million and club is offering $1.3 million)

Geoff Blum: $1.5 million 

Jeff Keppinger: $1.15 million 

Chris Sampson: $815,000

Jason Michaels: $800,000 

Humberto Quintero: $750,000 

J.R. Towles: $406,500

Chris Johnson: $400,000

– Lee, Berkman and Oswalt will make a combined $48 million, which will be about half of the 2010 payroll.

– The total amount of committed money for these players, including the estimates for Pence, Rodriguez and Byrdak, is $91,896,500. When the rest of the younger unsigned players get deals done, you can see the payroll will be around $95 million
