Major League Baseball’s mediation deadline is defined for inch ET on Friday. While many players may settle with their clubs to avoid arbitration, the remaining players that are eligible may want to exchange proposed salaries to the 2019 season in preparation for a possible hearing, in which a board of arbitrators decides between both figures.

Mookie Betts has made major news, as the reigning American League MVP settled with the Red Sox using a one time, $20 million deal which broke a record for second year arbirtation-eligible players. Betts’ $9.5 million raise from 2018 also exceeds the 8.8 million growth which Max Scherzer obtained via mediation in 2014.

Many scheduled hearings never happen, as their teams may keep on negotiating and usually settle one-year contracts before sitting down in front of this arbitrators. But several headlining stars like Colorado’s Nolan Arenado would prefer to head to trial since they hope to follow Betts’ example and net significant salary increases following exemplary statistical campaigns in 2018.

Generally, players acquire mediation eligibility after logging three years of Major League service. Then they go through the method prior to registering a long-term deal or reaching free agency after six years of service. A select band of Super Two players, who meet certain criteria, gain eligibility after two-plus years of service and then have mediation rights for 4 years instead of the usual three. Arbitration deals are not ensured, meaning that the team may still release a new player and pay a proportion of their salary owed. 

While the settlements come in, MLB.com is tracking the players who avoid mediation. All contracts are for a single year unless otherwise noticed. Some of these deals derive from sources or reports and also have not been confirmed by the clubs.
