Here’s the list:

Carl Crawford – $19.5 million
John Lackey – $15.25 million
Daisuke Matsuzaka – $10 millon
Bobby Jenks – $6 million
Andrew Bailey – $3.9 million
Andrew Miller – $1.04 million
Rich Hill – $725,000
Ryan Kalish – approx. $480,000
Chris Carpenter – approx. $480,000

It all adds up to $57.375 million, which is barely short of the approx. $62 million the Rays are spending on their entire 2012 roster. None of the players are expected back right off, either. Miller might rejoin the pen in a couple of weeks, though whether that’s a positive remains to be seen. Crawford is likely to miss most or all of April after wrist surgery. Matsuzaka is aiming for a June return from Tommy John surgery.¬†Lackey is out for the season, and neither Jenks nor Bailey are locks to return in the second half.
