When projecting payroll for MLB teams for the 2013 season, it's important to understand a variety of factors.
Attendance, TV contracts, size of market and other conditions help to dictate payroll for each team. In some cases, it can be a matter of owner preference, as well—in other words, what they're willing to spend.
Based on last year's Opening Day payroll for each team and money already committed for the 2013 season, each team's wiggle room in terms of what's left for player salaries is quite different.
Here's an idea of what each team has left in the coffers to spend before Opening Day 2013.
