20 January 2010
Ellsbury, Bard and Buchholz should all get minor raises for 2010 but the three additional contract aren't likely to total more than $1.75 million. And with the creative contract the Sox gave Beltre, his figure is actually only $7M in regards to the CBT luxury tax. That means the $162.5 million mark is roughly where the Sox will stand with Jeremy Hermida still unsigned and a few minor league deals to hand out.
Bottom Line: It will be close, but it looks like they will avoid going over the $170 million CBT ceiling again this season.
