1. Randy Arozarena - $8.1 million
After rumors that Arozarena was being traded were circling all offseason, the Rays have now set his value. Will they be willing to swallow an $8.4 million salary? This might be the final year the Rays hold onto Arozarena, but it'll be a big one. The biggest thing Arozarena improved last year was his walk total (80 total) while keeping his strikeouts from increasing.
Arozarena's batting average dipped a little to .254, but he put up the most home runs of any season and had 80+ RBI, showing his run-scoring ability for Tampa Bay (scoring 95, the most of his career in any season).
Hopefully, this agreement helps the Rays maintain an ever-improving hitter with discipline as he comes off of an All-Star season while decreasing animosity. His home run ball and base-running are also getting noticeably better, helping his stardom shine as the centerpiece to a team that thrives off of small ball.
