- First time: David Price, Jeff Niemann
- Second time: Andy Sonnanstine
- Third time: B.J. Upton, J.P. Howell
- Fourth time: Joel Peralta
Sonnanstine and Howell are potential non-tender candidates, as both have had rough years. Sonnanstine is currently at Triple-A.
Price and Upton will be a relatively expensive pair. Price, an expected Super Two player, comes with a projected $5.9MM salary that would be a first-time starter record if we didn't expect Clayton Kershaw to do even better. Price's days as cheap ace are ending. Upton, a trade candidate, projects in the $7MM range.
Niemann and Peralta are worth retaining as well. Niemann is looking at a first-time salary in the $2.7MM range, while Peralta could come in at a still-affordable $1.8MM.
