MLB Salary Arbitration: Expect Deals From Angels, Dodgers Tuesday

Expect Tuesday to be a busy day of several players signing contracts in Major League Baseball, as it is the day in which teams and players exchange salary figures in preparation for a potential salary arbitration hearing sometime next month. The Angels have six remaining players who filed for salary arbitration last week, headlined by staff ace Jered Weaver, who led the major leagues in strikeouts last season. The Dodgers have three players, including starting pitcher Chad Billingsley.

Last year, the Dodgers had nine players eligible for salary arbitration, and signed all nine by the day to exchange figures. The Angels had eight players eligible last year, and signed four before exchanging figures, then signed three more before the February arbitration process. They went to arbitration with Jeff Mathis, who won his case and with it a $1.3 million salary. The Angels have already signed arbitration-eligible players Mathis and Alberto Callaspo to contracts for 2011.
