Jenrry Mejia and Anthony Recker could be Super Two eligible at the end of the season according to MLB Trade Rumors.

This means that both players could be eligible for salary arbitration one year earlier than usual based on their service time. Currently, Mejia’s service time is at 1.14, while Recker comes in at 1.128.

Arbitration typically occurs after a full three years of service time. However a player with at least two years but less than three is eligible for arbitration if he has accumulated at least 86 days of service during the immediately preceding season and ranks in the top 22 percent in total service among players in the two-to-three-years service class.

These players are referred to as “Super Two” players who are then eligible for arbitration four times instead of three.

Right now this is nothing official, but simply something the team will monitor – more for Mejia than for Recker.
