Yeah, this will sit out here a long time. But seeing that Joba just signed a contract for $1,875,000 for 2013 made me wonder what OUR top prospects will be making 5 years down the line.

Hell, Joba is entering his 7th season as a NYY, and I bet no one five years ago thought he'd be making under $2 million for 2013.

Looking for the exact salary for Xander for 2017. So if in 2015 he signs a 7 year, $60 million deal, and it breaks down as:

2015 $3 million
2016 $4 million
2017 $6 million
2018 $8 million
2019 $10 million
2020 $13 million
2021 $13 million

then the answer is $6 million

Enter your guesses as replies. Don't want to do a poll as folks who wait to guess 3 years from now will have extra info.

Doing this for Xander, Rubby, and Bradley.

This is a fun idea.

I'll guess that he starts 2014 with the big club, but that he's not a Super-Two. So he'll make:

2014 (Pre-Arb): 500,000
2015 (Pre-Arb): 650,000 (raise)
2016(Pre-Arb): 750,000 (raise)
2017 (Arb 1): $5.5 million

My reasoning is that Jason Heyward just signed a deal to avoid Arb 1 worth $3.65m. I think a combination of salary inflation and Xander hopefully being a touch better than Heyward — a similar caliber of prospect — has been in the majors justifies the difference.
