Mets' payroll obligation for 2016 more than $92M before any winter activity

NEW YORK -- Before the New York Mets have any offseason activity, the organization has roughly $92.2 million in payroll commitments for 2016 (with raises from this season in parentheses).

Among the players coming off the books are Bartolo Colon and Daniel Murphy and rentals such as Yoenis Cespedes and Tyler Clippard.

Here's the individual breakdown:

David Wright $20M (technically no change, but Mets recouped insurance money this year for lost time)

Curtis Granderson $16M

Michael Cuddyer $12.5M (+$4M)

Jonathon Niese $9M (+$2M)

Lucas Duda $6.8M* (+$2.6M)

Addison Reed $5.7M* (+$0.825M)

Matt Harvey $4.7M* (+$4.086M)

Jeurys Familia $3.3M* (+$2.776M)

Juan Lagares $2.5M (+$1.971M)

Ruben Tejada $2.5M* (+$0.62M)

Carlos Torres $0.8M (+$0.218M)

Travis d'Arnaud $0.6M**

Jacob deGrom $0.6M**

Noah Syndergaard $0.6M**

Zack Wheeler $0.6M**

Steven Matz $0.6M**

Michael Conforto $0.6M**

Josh Edgin $0.6M**

Wilmer Flores $0.6M**

Erik Goeddel $0.6M**

Sean Gilmartin $0.6M**

Kevin Plawecki $0.6M**

Hansel Robles $0.6M**

Logan Verrett $0.6M**

Kirk Nieuwenhuis $0.6M**

Of course, players like Nieuwenhuis are likely to be bumped off by a free-agent acquisition or trade. But this gives you the rough cost of a 25-man roster if the Mets did nothing this offseason.
