Future of the roster

Am sure I'm going to need Jay/Ryan's help to confirm this, but I was wondering which players will be out of options for next years team (ala Guthrie and Davis this year).

On the current 40, we have 19 pitchers, five of which will have more than 5 seasons of mlb service time at end of the year (Borowski, Byrd, Fultz, CC, and Westbrook).

Of the other 14, I believe the following pitchers cannot be optioned (years option used)- Cabrera (04, 05, 06), Fausto (05, 06, 07), Matt Miller (03, 04, 07), Stanford (03, 04, 05), Koplove (6 year minor league FA). Of the 9 left, I doubt Betancourt (03, 04), Lee (02, 03) get optioned.

That leaves 7, Lara (06, 07), Martin (07), Mastny (06, 07), Mujica (06, 07), Perez (06, 07), Slocum (06, 07) and Sowers (06, 07)

For the hitters, less complicated I think.

Vic could be optioned I think (02, 03) but obviously wouldn't be. Shoppach I believe has one option left (05, 06)

In the infield, only Blake makes the 5 year cutoff, with Luna (03, 05, 07), Marte (05, 06, 07), and Rouse (04, 05, 06) out of options. Aubrey (06, 07), Barfield (05), Garko (06), Inglett (06, 07) and Jhonny (03, 04) all have options left. And Hafner does make the 5 year cutoff as well.

In the OF, Delluci, Nixon, and Michaels all have over 5 years. Gutierrez is out of option (05, 06, 07) but Choo (06, 07), Francisco (06, 07), Grady (04), and Snyder (06, 07) all have options. [Not sure about Choo though]

Out of those 40 guys, the following also have years left on their $$ contracts:

Borowski - $4.0M club option ($0.25M buyout) in '08
Byrd - $8.0M club option ($0.25M buyout) in '08
Fultz - $1.5M club option ($0.15M buyout) in '08
Lee - $3.75M in '08, $5.75M in '09, $8.0M club option ($1M buyout) in '10
CC - $9.0M
Westbrook - $10M in '08, $10M in '09, $11.0M in '10
Vic - $4.25M in '08, $5.7M in '09, $7.0M club option ($.25M buyout) in '10
Jhonny - $2.25M in '08, $3.4M in '09, $4.6M in '10, $7.0M club option ($.25M buyout) in '11
Dellucci - $3.75M in '08, $4M in '09
Michaels - $2.15M in '08, $2.6M in '09
Grady - $3M in '08, $4.6M in '09, $5.6M in '10, $8.5M in '11, $8.5M club option ($.5M buyout) in '12
Hafner - $4.75M club option ($0.25M buyout) in '08

It is what it is.
