Arrieta, Keuchel among 156 to file for salary arbitration
NEW YORK (AP) Cy Young Award winners Jake Arrieta of the Chicago Cubs and Dallas Keuchel of the Houston Astros were among 156 players who filed for salary arbitration Tuesday and are set to swap proposed figures with their teams this week unless they agree to contracts.
New Yankees closer Aroldis Chapman could file the highest salary request after earning $8,075,000 last season with Cincinnati unless he settles with New York before Friday's exchange of figures.
AL MVP Josh Donaldson also filed. He lost his case last year and made $4.3 million while leading the Toronto Blue Jays to their first playoff appearance since 1993.
