The commissioner's office said its final average was $3,955,920, up 3.4 percent from last year's $3,825,967. The union includes a pro-rated share of option buyouts that may be earned if the option is declined, while MLB does not take those into account in its average.

There were 963 players on active rosters and disabled lists on Aug. 31, the last day before the player limit expanded from 25 per team to 40. That was down one from last year.

Baseball's average salary declines during the season as some veterans are released and replaced by younger players. The added players earn at or close to the major league minimum, which was $535,000 this year and rises to $545,000 next season.

New Year's resolutions for every MLB team .
The calendar has officially flipped to 2018, which means we can finally say that baseball will be played “this year” instead of “next year.” Now that we all have a clean slate, more than a few of us probably have made some New Year’s resolutions to uphold over the next 12 months. MLB clubs are no different, so we gave each team one resolution to work toward in 2018.
