MR Juan Canó (24, ML) - $2.5
3B Lorenzo Luján (20, AAA) - $0.38/$0.38/arbitration/arbitration/arbitration
SP Steve Vance (24, ML) - $0.38/arbitration/arbitration
Canó pitched extremely well for Gloucester in '08. He went 5-3 with a 2.99 ERA along with 6 saves in 81.1 innings. He signed a 3-year extension worth $15,650,000 with Gloucester. He is one the league's best setup men but has missed all of the '09 season with a torn bicep.
Luján played poorly for Gloucester in '08 hitting .211 with 8 homeruns and 50 RBIs in 127 games. He was claime off waivers by San Antonio in September (9/18/08). He has played poorly in '09 and it appears his big league opportunities are closing.
Vance pitched poorly with Kentucky in '08 going 1-8 with a 6.22 ERA in 22 games. He has pitched better in '09 with Kentucky but still remains a questionable starter.
