Mets News: Josh Thole Officially “Super Two” Arbitration Eligible
It’s official… Josh Thole, who has accumulated two years and 142 days of Major League service, will be eligible for arbitration for the first time in 2013.
The “Super Two” cutoff for arbitration this winter is two years and 139 days of Major League service.
Original Post 10/17
According to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, the official calculation from Major League Baseball has not yet been shared with clubs, but the Mets do expect that Josh Thole will be eligible for arbitration by a matter of days.
Players automatically are eligible for arbitration after three years of major league service time (and are free agents after six years of major league service time).
In addition, a select group of players with two-plus years service time — known as Super Twos — also are eligible for arbitration. That does not make them eligible for free agency earlier; it means they have four arbitration years instead of three.
Thole — who has 2 years, 142 days of service time — will make the cut, the Mets fully expect. So will Ike Davis at 2 years, 168 days.
Including Thole, the full list of arbitration-eligible Mets and what they could expect to earn are:
- Daniel Murphy – $3MM
- Bobby Parnell – $1.5MM
- Josh Thole – $1.0MM
- Rob Johnson – $600K
- Ike Davis – $2.8MM
- Fred Lewis – $500K
- Manny Acosta – $1.1MM
- Andres Torres – $3.2MM
- Mike Pelfrey – $5.7MM
