Just like any high end fashion magazine, the Fall MLS Salary Catalog was just released this morning. As per usual, take these with a grain of salt as not every number or dollar sign represented here is what goes towards the cap.

So here you go:

Name 2016 Base Salary 2016 Total Compensation
Kellyn Acosta $220,000 $240,000
Tesho Akindele $80,000 $97,500
Alves Dos Santos Getterson $144,000 $174,500
Michael Barrios $70,000 $70,000
Colin Bonner $51,504 $51,504
Fabian Castillo $155,750 $170,750
Coy Craft $70,000 $87,083
Aubrey David $62,508 $83,674.67
Mauro Diaz $466,000 $544,400
Maynor Figueroa $115,000 $138,333
Jesse Gonzalez $67,500 $76,875
Carlos Gruezo $450,000 $686,500
Aaron Guillen $51,500 $51,500
Atiba Harris $143,000 $143,000
Matt Hedges $152,000 $152,000
Ryan Herman $62,508 $62,508
Moises Hernandez $100,000 $105,000
Ryan Hollingshead $122,500 $122,500
Carlos Lizarazo $62,508 $130,633
Zach Loyd $200,000 $221,666
Juan Esteban Ortiz $160,000 $204,500
Norberto Paparrato $174,999.96 $174.999.96
Timo Pitter $51,504 $51,504
Paxton Pomykal $51,504 $56,504
Mauro Rosales $62,500 $62,500
Carlos Ruiz $72,000 $72,000
Chris Seitz $136,000 $136,000
Victor Ulloa $130,000 $132,500
Maximiliano Urruti $250,000 $250,000
Alejandro Zendejas $70,000 $88,466
Walker Zimmerman $174,000 $174,000

Total numbers:

$4,178,786 - That’s FCD’s base salary total, which is $432,503.96 more than what was listed in the Spring. It should be noted that several players do not count towards the cap as they are developmental salaries. Also maximum a DP costs against the cap is $457,500. Gruezo is actually a Young DP, so his hit is only $200k.

Developmental salaries include: Bonner, Craft, Gullien, Herman, Pomykal, and Pitter.

The new guys:

Probably the most eye opening here is Getterson’s salary at $144k (base). Paparatto is also pretty expensive at $175k (base) but a veteran central defender is going to cost that much in this league. On the surprisingly good end will be Aubrey David at just $62k (base). Carlos Ruiz clocks in at an expected $72k (base).
