It is arbitration season, which might be the busiest time of the baseball offseason. Here are some news and notes from around the arbitration cases in baseball today.
- It appears that Mike Pelfrey and the New York Mets have settled on a deal for 2012. ESPN New York reports that he agreed to a one-year deal worth around $5.67 million. The Mets just have Manny Acosta and Andres Torres left in arbitration.
- Joe Capozzi from the Palm Beach Post says that the Miami Marlins have come to an agreement with Juan Carlos Oviedo. He agreed to a $6 million deal with them. The former Leo Nunez is currently on the restricted list for his use of the false identity.
- Lastly, Jon Heyman from CBS Sports says that the Seattle Mariners avoided arbitration with relief pitcher Brandon League by agreeing to a $5 million deal. League will be a free agent after this season, making this his last season where he was eligible for arbitration.
