salary arbitration deals, or those still in the process for 2010
With clubs feverishly working to sign players before salary arbitration figures are exchanged Tuesday night, a series of late night salary arbitration deals that stretched from Monday into Tuesday morning have been reached. All told, 12 deals were brokered on Monday. All one-year deals, the total amount spent on the 12 deals on Monday alone totaled $27,960,000, up 107 percent from the $13,489,200 the players made last year. Here’s a breakdown of the six that were finished late.
Marlins Reach Deals with Anibal Sanchez and Renyel Pinto
Following up on 1 year, $7.8 million deal that the Marlins reached with second baseman Dan Uggla, reached earlier Monday, the Marlins signed SP Anibal Sanchez to a 1-year, $1.25 million deal, while also signing RP Renyel Pinto to a $1.075 million, 1-year deal, as well.
The last two players the Marlins have left in salary arbitration are Jorge Cantu, and Cody Ross.
Yankees Sign Gaudin, Logan to 1-Year Deals
The Yankees got two pitchers off their salary arbitration plate, as well, by signing them to one-year deals. Starting pitcher Chad Gaudin signed a $2.95 million contract, while RP Boone Logan signed a $590,000 deal.
The signing of the two pitchers, plus non-tendering Chien-Ming Wang, the Yankees will have no players exchanging salary figures in salary arbitration.
Diamondbacks Reach 1-Year Contracts with Qualls, Heilman
The Diamondbacks settled two deals on Monday RP Aaron Heilman got a 1-year, $2.15 million deal, while reliever Chad Qualls landed a $4.185 million deal for 2010.
The Diamondbacks are left with Stephen Drew and Edwin Jackson as arbitration players still pending.
White Sox Reach 1-Year Deal with Pena
The White Sox reached a 1-year, $1.2 million deal with RP Tony Pena. The signing of Pena leaves John Danks as the lone salary arb player the White Sox need to address.
With Signing of Jared Burton, Reds Complete Salary Arbitration Deals
The Reds signed RP Jared Burton to a 1-year, $810,000 deal, and with that, the Reds have completed their salary arbitration eligible players.
Look for More on Tuesday
With the flurry of late night signings, the total number of salary arbitration eligible players stands at 110, down exactly 100 from the total number of potential salary arbitration eligible players in Nov. of 2009. With clubs and players needing to reach agreements tomorrow before needing to exchange salary figures, expect the same, or possibly more deals reached tomorrow.
