I assume payroll will be similar to this season, or $50 MM. I could see that number being higher, but not much
The A's are still in the "finding the next core group" stage of the rebuild, so adding free agents is unlikely.
MLB Trade Rumors projected Sean Murphy, Ramón Laureano, Austin Pruitt, Tony Kemp, Deolis Guerra, and Paul Blackburn to earn $15M.
If arbitration estimates are accurate, the major league minimum will rise to $720K and 20 players will get that amount, bringing payroll to around $30M.
