Eighty-one players reached agreements, leaving just 36 headed toward arbitration hearings next month in Phoenix.
San Diego third baseman Chase Headley had the largest request and the biggest spread, asking for $10.3 million while the Padres offered $7,075,000.
Boston reliever Craig Breslow had the slimmest gap. He sought $2,375,000 - that was $50,000 more than the Red Sox offered.
