Donaldson, Machado headline arbitration-eligible players
BOSTON, MA - JULY 17: Josh Donaldson #20 of the Toronto Blue Jays throws to first base in the third inning of a game against the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park on July 17, 2017 in Boston, Massachusetts.

The deadline for major-league teams to exchange salary figures with arbitration-eligible players is Friday at 1 p.m. ET.

With the deadline looming, a number of players and teams have already agreed on salaries for the 2018 season, though more than 100 players still remain without.

Friday's deadline is the cutoff for each side to establish a figure that it deems fair - all players are under team control, but the arbitration process determines their salary. The two sides can negotiate over the next several weeks, but if they can't come to an agreement, a arbitrator decides the player's salary based on the two figures submitted by the player and the team at a hearing. The arbitrator selects one of the submitted salaries - there is no middle ground or adjustment.

This year's class of arbitration-eligible players features a number of stars, including Josh Donaldson, Manny Machado, and Kris Bryant.


Player Team Projection
Josh Donaldson Blue Jays $20.7M
Jose Abreu White Sox $17.9M
Manny Machado Orioles $17.3M
Charlie Blackmon Rockies $13.4M
Dallas Keuchel Astros $12.6M
Zach Britton Orioles $12.2M
Anthony Rendon Nationals $11.5M
Marcell Ozuna Cardinals $10.9M
Jacob deGrom Mets $9.2M
Drew Pomeranz Red Sox $9.1M
Didi Gregorius Yankees $9M
Kris Bryant Cubs $8.9M
Mookie Betts Red Sox $8.2M
