Salary data is available for Major Leaguers since 1985. Players not on opening day roster, for the most part, are assumed to have earned the minimum salary for that year. Team payrolls are based on opening day rosters and the player's listed team is the first team he played for during a given season. Career earnings are estimates and based only on available data.
