NEW YORK (AP) - Toronto outfielder Colby Rasmus, Baltimore pitcher Tommy Hunter and Oakland catcher George Kottaras agreed to one-year contracts, leaving 133 players eligible to file for salary arbitration Tuesday.
Rasmus gets $4,675,000 under Monday's agreement, Hunter $1.82 million and Kottaras $1 million.
San Francisco catcher Buster Posey, Atlanta outfielder Jason Heyward, Boston outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury, Chicago Cubs pitcher Matt Garza and Giants outfielder Hunter Pence are among those eligible to file.
Players and teams are scheduled to swap proposed salaries Friday, and hearings before three-arbitrator panels will take place next month in Phoenix.
Most cases will settle before they go to hearings, and some players eligible for arbitration already have agreed to contracts. Tampa Bay pitcher David Price, the AL Cy Young Award winner, reached a one-year agreement for $10,112,500.
