Tampa Bay pitcher David Price, Pittsburgh third baseman Pedro Alvarez, Cincinnati pitcher Aroldis Chapman, Arizona outfielder Mark Trumbo, Baltimore catcher Matt Wieters and Washington pitcher Jordan Zimmermann also were among those who filed Tuesday.

Players are set to swap proposed salaries with their clubs Friday, and hearings will be scheduled for next month in St. Petersburg, Fla.

Of the 133 players who filed last year, none went to hearings - the first time since the process began in 1974 that every case settled. After peaking at 35 hearings in 1986, the number of cases argued hasn't reached double digits since 2001.

Players in arbitration averaged a 119 percent increase last year, according to a study by The Associated Press.
