100 players filed for arbitration Friday. The Orioles have nine players who filed. The most notable players are Dontrelle Willis, Brad Lidge, and Mark Prior (but that's just my opinion). The Dodgers, Padres, and Giants have no players filing for arbitration.
Players and the teams exchange figures Tuesday. For players who don't settle, the hearings take place during the first three weeks of February.
The first ever player to have his salary arbitration case decided was Minnesota pitcher Dick Woodson in 1974. He was able to win a salary of $29,000. The Twins offered $23,000.
