    Default Super 2 Rule

    I read it somewhere in reference to ALverez. What exactly is the super 2 rule as it pertains to arbitration?

    Depending on the service time a player can reach arbitration in two years instead of 3.

    A player is eligible for arbitration after 3 years of ML service time. But a handful can become arb eligible after 2 years if they have enough time. The top 17 percent of players with at least 2 but less than 3 years of Major League service qualify for super 2 status. If a team waits until about the first or second week in June that usually is the time when the super status is avoided. Think McCutchen last year.

    If Alvarez produces, though, I think we may see him sooner than that. However, if Andy can have a good start to the season then maybe we can/will wait until June.

    Were only talking 8 weeks or so here Ben.....Alvarez needs some more seasoning. He really struggles against LH'ers and as NH has said he hasn't even faced pitchers above AA yet. If you don't like the McCutchen comparison use Wieters as your guide...Alvarez isn't coming up before them.

    You are, hopefully, right. I just am actually a little excited to see Alvarez bomb baseballs into the river.

    Both comparisons are good, though, because I think for smaller market teams it is important to make sure you get that extra full year of control in.

    Think of it this way....Best case scenario…. Alvarez is going to need at least a month of raking out of the gate at AAA to prove it isn't a fluke. That only leaves about another month in the minors before he can come up. Is that 1 month so important to risk losing millions of dollars in arb for the club? Is that 1 month going to make a difference in the standings? Is that 1 month going to harm his development in any way?

    It's a no brainer.
