MLBInterested in players that have filed for salary arbitration?

The Biz of Baseball has now updated information as released by the MLBPA for players that have filed for 2008.

110 players have filed for salary arbitration, including the likes of Mark Teixeira, Matt Holliday, Chien-Ming Wang, Khalil Greene, Erik Bedard, Miguel Cabrera and Kevin Youkilis.

Figures between the players and teams must be exchanged by this Friday, the 18th.

If the sides cannot come upon an agreement, hearings run from February 1-21. Hearings, by way of an arbitration panel, determine whether the player figure or the team figure is assigned. No figure in-between is selected.

Last year saw the Tampa Bay Devil Rays win in their case with Josh Paul ($625,000), Miguel Cabrera win his case ($7,400,000), while Kevin Gregg lost his ($575,000) with the Florida Marlins, the Los Angeles Dodgers won their case with Joe Beimel ($912,500), while Todd Walker won his case with the San Diego Padres ($3,950,000), and Chad Cordero won his case ($4,150,000), with John Patterson losing his ($850,000) to the Washington Nationals.

(See a complete breakdown of player figures, team figures, whether they signed, or whether the team or player won that filed last year)

The Biz of Baseball will be providing all salary figures for arbitration, as well, as soon as they are released.
