State of the Padres Payroll - Pre-Offseason Edition

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

MLBTR has already come out with their 2017 arbitration projections (which are generally pretty accurate), so I figured it might be interesting to see where the Padres sit from a payroll perspective next season. I don't think any of us expect the Padres to make any high dollar moves for another off-season or two, but it is still interesting to see where the Padres have landed after dismantling their first $100+ million flop team.
