New York is the only team to pay the luxury tax this year. The Yankees' final payroll for luxury tax purposes climbed from $222.5 million to $223.4 million.

The Yankees pay at a 42.5 percent rate on the amount over the $178 million threshold. The luxury tax uses average annual values of contracts and includes benefits.

New York's regular payroll -- 2012 salaries, earned bonuses and prorated shares of signing bonuses -- increased from $223.3 million to a record $224.2 million.
