Can option?
- "Yes" means a player can be unilaterally optioned by the club. "Yes*" means optional waivers are required prior to the player being optioned. "No" means the player is either out of option years, or the player's consent is required.

Outright Choices - Refers to the rights of a player has under the CBA if his team attempts to outright him off the 40-man roster. "None" means the player must accept the outright assignment. "Elect FA" means the player can choose to become a free agent rather than accept the outright assignment. "Refuse" means that, in addition to having the right to elect free agency, the player can simply refuse the outright assignment.

MLB Service - Credited service time as of January 2014, from Baseball-Reference.com in date format yy.ddd. For example, 3.102 means a player has three years, 102 days of service time. 172 days are needed to qualify for a full year of service time, although a player cannot earn more than one year's service in a season.

Added to 40-man - Date the player was first added to the 40-man roster, in date format mm/yyyy.

Opt 1/2/3 - Years that the player's first / second / third option years were used, if applicable.

Previous outright - Year that the player was first previously outrighted off a 40-man roster, if applicable.

Opt'd less than 20d - Refers to years when the player was sent on optional assignment for less than 20 days total, and therefore the option year is not deemed to have been used.

Opt 4 - Year for which the teams was granted a fourth option year for the player, if applicable. "Pot." indicates that a player may potentially become eligible for a 4th option year in the future.
