Four Red Sox file for arbitration
|01.16.10 at 9:20 am ET|
Jonathan Papelbon was one of four Red Sox to file for salary arbitration Friday, joining 124 other major leaguers in declaring they were eligible for the process. Also filing from the Sox were outfielder Jeremy Hermida, and relief pitchers Ramon Ramirez and Manny Delcarmen. Tuesday is the deadline for teams and players to submit salary figures for arbitration.
No Red Sox player has reached an arbitration hearing in Theo Epstein’s tenure as Red Sox’ GM, with Papelbon having avoided the process last year by agreeing to a one-year deal for $6.25 million, a record amount for a first-year arbitration-eligible pitcher.
Hermida avoided arbitration in his first year of being eligible, last year, signing a one-year, $2.25 million deal. This will be the first time Ramirez or Delcarmen are eligible for arbitration.
