As Jeremy Nygaard's invaluable Roster & Payroll page
shows, the club's estimated 2014 payroll now sits at $83.4 million with the updated arbitration figures factored in.
To some, that number may feel unsatisfactory, given that it's not a sizable increase from last year's mark and isn't likely to rise much. But it's a step in the right direction, and right now that's important.
After reaching agreement on one-year deals with their three arbitration-eligible players late last week, the Twins now have a clearer idea of where their spending commitments for the coming season currently stand.
