The Minnesota Twins will open the 2014 season with MLB’s seventh-lowest payroll despite pulling in a healthy profit in 2013, according to a report released Wednesday by the Associated Press.

The Twins’ entire roster will be paid $85,776,500 or just over 1/3 of what the Los Angeles Dodgers spend ($235,295,219). In fact, the top four highest paid players on the Dodgers make more than the entire Twins roster (Kershaw $28 million, Gonzalez $22 million, Kemp $21 million and Crawford $21 million).

The Twins made $30 million dollars in profit on $221 million in revenue in 2013 according to Forbes, the sixth most of any team. The Twins have an estimated value of $605 million, making them the 19th most valuable team in baseball.
