National League arbitration roundup

Several new deals have been announced, but many notable players remain unsigned.

Today was the deadline for teams to exchange salary figures with arbitration-eligible players. Several one-years deals have been announced as teams attempt to avoid the arbitration panel. Last offseason, for the first time in the 40-year history of the process, no cases went to hearing.

That might not be the case again this winter, as several notable players, like Craig Kimbrel, Homer Bailey, and others, have yet to come to an agreement with their respective teams. Players can still negotiate and sign new deals between now and their hearings, but some teams have adopted a "file and trial" strategy that could lead to certain players seeing the panel.
