MLBWith the Florida Marlins signing right-hander Ricky Nolasco on Friday, yet another potential salary arbitration eligible player can be crossed off the list.

In a sign that clubs are looking to avoid any additional salary that comes through the collectively bargained process, of the 210 potential players up for salary arbitration released by the MLBPA on Nov. 12 (See details, plus complete listing), just 145 players remain unsigned.

During a ten-day period from January 5-15 players with 3-6 years of major league service time, plus a select group of players that have almost 3 years of Major League service time called "Super Twos", are eligible to file for salary arbitration. (see the 111 players from the last salary arb filing class) After those ten days, starting on January 19, players and clubs begin exchanging salary arbitration figures; an "asking" and "offering" salary figure. Should the sides not come to a contract agreement, a hearing before three arbitrators takes place. Those panels select one figure or the other; there is no selection in-between. Those hearings run from Feb. 1-21. Last year, there were only three salary arbitration hearings, with players winning 2 of the 3 (see the complete salary arbitration scorecard).
