Near Misses For Super Two Status

Last offseason, two years and 122 days of service time was enough for super two status. It looks like players will need about three weeks more service time to qualify as super twos after the coming season, which means many players who won't qualify this year would have qualified last year. Keeping in mind that this list is subject to change until the season ends, here's a look at the players who may just miss super two status this offseason (Opening Day service time noted):

Three players, Chris Davis and Derek Holland of the Rangers and, Tommy Hanson of the Braves entered the season with one year and 120 days of service.

Thanks to Cot's Baseball Contracts for the service time info.

It will be huge if Cutch isn’t a super two player, but regardless, I think the Pirates have to present him with a huge long term deal and give him the key to the city. That will go a long way towards showing the fans they want to compete, and I think I’d give up on them if he were to be traded.

agreed… after Ohlendorf won his case, I wouldn’t be surprised at all if he is traded or non-tendered this year. I wouldn’t lose sleep if the same thing happened to potential Super Twos Jaramillo or Bowker, but if it happened to McCutchen I’d throw in the towel.

Sorry, I had to.
