Felipe Aguilar:  http://www.whatifsports.com/HBD/Pages/Popups/PlayerProfile.aspx?pid=4132139

5.082 years of MLB service.  This is the first year I've had him arb, because i got him in a trade last year.

The odd thing is that he's had contracts of $343K, $360K, $350K and $350K the last 4 years.

I think he will become a FA after this year, if I don't longterm him, isn't that correct?

He wants $3.9M for one season or $5M X 4. 

Thanks....

He's been arbed twice, this is his third arb year.

If he accumulates more than 90 days of ML service, then yes, he will become a FA after this season.

+1.  Two clues:
1) $350K is not what the next steps would be for pre-arb contracts; it should have been $378K, $396K.  $350K must be a negotiated amount.
2) He pitched rather little in the relevant seasons; often players with low playing time make very low arb demands the following season.

On a similar note, does anyone know what the dollar amount for a rookie contract is ? I think Hardball Dynasty – Fantasy Baseball Sim Games - Player Profile: Rubby Franco is still on his rookie contract, because he's got an MLB contract for $343k, but does anyone have a more definitive way to tell ?

When a player is promoted to the majors for the first time froma  minor league contract, his salary is set at $327k.

He'll get a 5% "raise" in each of his pre-arb years  ($327k --> $343k --> $360k).

So that means I'll have him for this year and next before he hits arbitration ?

I think he will be a FA next season.
