Projected Super Two Cutoff

The projected Super Two cutoff is two years and 119 days of Major League service time, according to Ryan Galla of CAA Baseball.  This number is often written as 2.119.  Among the players expected to qualify after the 2013 season: Brandon Belt, Steve Cishek, Andy Dirks, Felix Doubront, Lucas Duda, Tyler Flowers, Charlie Furbush, Eric Hosmer, Lance Lynn, Jake McGee, Michael McKenry, Mike Minor, Chris Nelson, Juan Nicasio, Ben Revere, Pedro Strop, Dayan Viciedo, and Vance Worley.  Lynn's service time will be the same as the projected cutoff, and Doubront will be a day above it.

Players with at least three but less than six years of Major League service are considered arbitration eligible.  Additionally, a player with at least two years but less than three is eligible for arbitration if he has accumulated at least 86 days of service during the immediately preceding season and ranks in the top 22% in total service in the two-to-three class.  The current collective bargaining agreement, which went into effect December 12th, 2011, raised that Super Two percentage from 17% to 22%.  Bottom line: Super Two players are arbitration eligible four times instead of the usual three.
