An offseason that is expected to involve several changes to the San Francisco Giants roster, coaching staff, and beyond will also include some pay increases for players currently on the 40-man roster.

Major League Baseball explains the arbitration process as follows:

Players who have three or more years of Major League service but less than six years of Major League service become eligible for salary arbitration if they do not already have a contract for the next season.

Players who have less than three but more than two years of service time can also become arbitration-eligible if they meet certain criteria; these are known as “Super Two” players. Players and clubs negotiate over salaries, primarily based on comparable players who have signed contracts in recent seasons.

Here are the Giants players that are in line for bumps in pay in 2024 (salary projections per MLB Trade Rumors)

  • Austin Slater – $3.6 million
  • J.D. Davis – $6.8 million
  • Mike Yastrzemski – $7.3 million
  • LaMonte Wade Jr. -$3.3 million
  • Tyler Rogers – $3.2 million
  • Thairo Estrada – $4.8 million

Estrada’s case for a raise is strong following the infielder’s strong 2023 season.

Over 120 games, the 27-year-old second baseman hit .271 (second-best on the Giants) while mashing 14 home runs, driving in 49 runs, swiping 23 bases (most on SF), and posting a .731 on-base-plus-slugging-percentage.

Yastrzemski, now the second longest-tenured member of the Giants behind Austin Slater with Brandon Crawford’s likely exit, will see his salary jump from $6.1 million to $7.3 million in 2024.

The 33-year-old outfielder dealt with injuries for a portion of 2023 but still hit .233 with 15 home runs and 43 RBI.

Elk Grove native J.D. Davis is set for a decent raise ($6.8 million in 2024 versus $4.2 million in 2023) following a solid season at the plate. The 30-year-old hit 18 home runs (most since 2019) and drove in 69 runs (led the Giants) while logging innings at first and third base.

It’s unknown if San Francisco president Farhan Zaidi has all six of these players in his plans for 2024, but those listed in this piece have put themselves in a position for a raise, regardless of where they suit up next spring.
