MLB Trade Rumors reviewed the Mets nine arbitration eligible players:and projected what they could earn this offseason at the bargaining table: Daniel Murphy – $3MM Bobby Parnell – $1.5MM Josh Thole – $1.2MM Rob Johnson – $600K Ike Davis – $2.8MM Fred Lewis – $500K Manny Acosta – $1.1MM Andres Torres – $3.2MM Mike Pelfrey – $5.7MM Ike Davis and Josh Thole became arbitration eligible one year earlier than usual because they earned Super Two Player status. Aside from Thole, Davis, Daniel Murphy and Bobby Parnell, it’s a nearly a certainty that the others will be non-tendered and that includes Mike Pelfrey and Andres Torres. Under the rules of the new CBA any player tendered cannot be offered less than 80% of what he earned in the prior season. Davis and Murphy will get the most significant raises and using the above projections, it will cost the Mets  $8.5 million dollars to keep both of them plus Parnell and Thole. That’s about $6.5 million more than what those players earned
