Fiscal Look At The Yankees Disabled List

One of our fans asked to see a total of salary that we have dished out this season to players missing time on the disabled list or just sitting and resting nagging injuries. Here are the findings:

I only included guys that have missed a minimum of 2 games missed. Everyone has that one day they take off for a sore this or a nagging that.

Alex Rodriguez        27 Games Missed    $29,000,000 salary     $179,012.36 per game = $4,833,333.72
David Aardsma       125 Games Missed   $500,000 salary         $3,086.42 per game = $385,502.50
Cesar Cabral          125 Games Missed   $480,000 salary          $2,962.96 per game = $370,370.00
Pedro Feliciano      125 Games Missed    $4,000,000 salary      $24,691.36 per game = $3,086,420.00
Brad Meyers          125 Games Missed   $480,000 salary          $2,962.96 per game = $370,370.00
Andy Pettitte           49 Games Missed     $2,500,000 salary      $15,432.10 per game = $756,172.90
Michael Pineda       125 Games Missed   $528,000 salary          $3,259.26 per game =  $407,407.50
Mariano Rivera       99 Games Missed     $15,000,000 salary    $92,592.59 per game = $9,166,666.41
CC Sabathia           20 Games Missed     $23,000,000 salary    $141,975.31 per game = $2,839,506.20
Brett Gardner         114 Games Missed    $2,800,000 salary     $17,283.95 per game =  $1,970,370.30
Austin Romine        121 Games Missed    $482,000 salary        $2,975.31 per game = $360,012.51
Mark Teixeira         9 Games Missed       $22,500,000 salary    $138,888.89 per game = $1,250,000.01
Nick Swisher          8 Games Missed       $10,250,000 salary   $63,271.60 per game = $506,172.80
Robinson Cano       2 Games Missed       $14,000,000 salary   $86,419.75 per game = $172,839.50
Eric Chavez            7 Games Missed       $900,000 salary        $5,555.56 per game = $38,888.92
Eduardo Nunez      60 Games Missed      $524,000 salary       $3,234.58 per game = $194,074.80
Russell Martin        10 Games Missed      $7,500,000 salary    $46,296.30 per game = $462,963.00
David Robertson    28 Games Missed      $1,600,000 salary    $9,876.54 per game = $276,543.12
Joba Chamberlain  113 Games Missed    $1,675,000 salary    $10,339.51 per game = $1,168,364.63


The Yankees , to date, have lost a total of $28,615,978.82 to players missing time due to injuries with or without a disabled list trip. Really kind of scary when you think about the fact we're in the discussion for best record in the American League and running away with the American League East.

Don't worry I know your tired of reading about the Yankees and their DL so this will be the last post on it.

  1. Thanks man, this was interesting. I would imagine that 28+ mil is more than the Astros current payroll. Pretty crazy. Anyway, nice post.

  2. How much of that total comes off the salary cap / is covered by insurance?

      As seen here Mike Axisa from River Avenue Blues said that those terms are based on a case by case basis and not made public to us.

      I am sure that insurance covers some of it, especially on players like Mo and Arod, but I am sure it is not a lot.
