Arbitration-eligible players will account for 'significant amount of dollars' for Tigers

Jonathan Daniel

Arbitration-eligible players are expected to make significantly more next season for the Tigers.

The Detroit Tigers will see an increase in payroll if they keep the same lineup that they had this year, as arbitration-eligible players may account for a $15 million increase in team salary, according to Chris Iott of Mlive.com.

The Tigers have seven players that are eligible for arbitration this season, including center fielder Austin Jackson, catcher Alex Avila and pitchers Phil Coke, Doug Fister, Rick Porcello and Max Scherzer.

Despite the added projected salary, Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski hasn't ruled out the team being active in free agency but he has yet to have that conversation with owner Mike Ilitch.

Below is a list of current and projected salaries that Iott compiled:

Alex Avila
2012: $510,000
2013: $2.5 million

Brennan Boesch
2012: $502,500
2013: $2.1 million

Phil Coke
2012: $1.1 million
2013: $1.7 million

Doug Fister
2012:$507,500
2013: $3.8 million

Austin Jackson
2012:$500,000
2013:$3.1 million

Rick Porcello
2012:$3.1 million
2013: $4.7 million

Max Scherzer
2012:$3.75 million
2013:$7.5 million
