EDIT: Added Simon and Heisey. All numbers are available here.
So far, only one Red has avoided arbitration for sure – the team and Logan Ondrusek signed a two-year deal earlier this week. That means a good number of Reds players were filing for arbitration this week, and Jon Heyman tweeted some of the numbers out.
So far, Latos and the Reds filed pretty close together, so that could be a 1 year deal pretty soon, if they’re not working on a multi-year contract. The spread for Bailey’s and Leake’s numbers are a little bigger. Choo’s got the biggest spread, and I thought it was interesting that Choo, whose agent is Scott Boras, basically submitted the same as the MLB Trade Rumors projection. MLBTR could be misjudging the arb-market for Choo, but it makes me wonder if Choo’s less likely to settle, because it seems to me like going to an arbitration hearing is a great way to get off on a bad foot with your new center fielder.
Here’s a summary, with some reference numbers.
