Arbitration Estimates for 2012 Cleveland Indians

The Indians currently have seven players eligible for salary arbitration. Cleveland rarely if ever allows it’s cases to go all the way to the arbiter, preferring to settle them in-house.

MLB Trade Rumors.com has a fairly accurate track record when it comes to predicting the numbers for salary eligible players. Here are their predictions for the Cleveland Indians eligible-

  • Asdrubal Cabrera – $4.8MM
  • Shin-Soo Choo – $4.3MM
  • Chris Perez – $4.2MM
  • Justin Masterson – $3.6MM
  • Rafael Perez – $1.9MM
  • Joe Smith – $1.6MM
  • Jack Hannahan – $1.3MM
