2013 MLB Top Salaries Per Team Analysis

Which teams have the most top paid players?

Top Salaries Per Team - Based on Top 60

We decided to take a look at the comparison of the Top 60 highest paid players and which teams those players play for. You might be asking why did we use the top 60 and not 50 or 100? We chose to use the top 60 players with an assumption that every team could potentially have two players on the list. However, that is obviously not the case, especially in a league where there is no cap restrictions.

No surprises here with the Dodgers and Yankees are atop the list. A surprising result however, is that 1/3 of the teams don't have a player in the top 60. Milwaukee, Tampa Bay, and Oakland, all above .500 last year, do not currently have a top 60 paid player; Oakland made the playoffs last year as well.
