Red Sox's Mookie Betts, Mets' Jacob deGrom avoid arbitration

Red Sox arbitration tracker Six players still unsigned after deadline

Nine Boston players remained set to swap proposed arbitration salaries on Friday, including AL MVP Mookie Betts.

Fresh off his 2018 MVP campaign, Betts, a second-time eligible player, almost doubles his pay from the $10.5 million deal he struck with Boston to avoid arbitration prior to last season. He made four starts and six relief appearances, went back on the disabled list in late June because of the knee, then returned in September. Before the 2017 season, Betts' contract was renewed. The biggest contract earned by an arbitration-eligible player is the $23 million that current Atlanta Braves third baseman Josh Donaldson received past year.

After beating the Red Sox in arbitration last offseason, the 26-year-old Betts led the major leagues in batting average (.346) and slugging percentage (.640) and was second in on-base average (.438). If the sides are unable to come to an agreement in time, an arbitration panel is tasked with determining if the player will be paid what they asked for or what the team was offering.

May warns MPs against 'catastrophic' failure to deliver Brexit
The vote was postponed at short notice in December after the Prime Minister faced a humiliating defeat by politicians. On Friday, her foreign minister Jeremy Hunt said Brexit might not happen at all if May's deal was defeated.

We're a couple hours past the deadline at the time of this writing and deals have yet to be announced for some of the arbitration-eligible players.

Shortstop Xander Bogaerts, who batted.288 with 23 home runs and 103 RBI for the World Series champs, agreed to a $12 million, one-year deal according to the Globe.

Brandon Workman, Steven Wright, and Sandy Leon are entering their second year of arbitration while Blake Swihart, Eduardo Rodriguez, and Matt Barnes are entering their first year.
