Other than posts like this, is there a publicly accessible (online) repository for contract details for all MLB players?

I’ve never visited the site, but I’ve heard this referred to innumerable times: or something to that effect. Anyway, Cots is the key word.

Mark…outstanding post above and thanks for the stie info on contracts.
Been looking for a definitive site about salaries for a long time.

Much appreciated. Not only interesting, but allows for insightes into
players thoughts…in some targeted ways.

Thanks again, Mark

best site for contracts my man is, awesome site!

Very nice work. Hopefully they all work hard to make the bonus money this season.

Does anyone know Ryan Ludwick’s 2013 option salary figure?
Check out all MLB salaries, depth charts and stats at

Is the contract details for Willie Harris correct? The $2,500 per month seems very low even for a salary in the minors…

any thoughts on who will get dropped off 40 man to get Ludwick on?

Maybe the spot will be cleared via a trade. Or one of the older pitchers who’ve never stuck with the big club, like Carlos Fisher. Or, one of the prospective infielders who hasn’t been much ballyhooed, li8ke Donald Lutz. All guesses, of course.

I think it will either be Fisher or Kris Negron that will be taken off the 40 man roster,
