Arbitration Notes: AL East

Today was the day when teams and players are required to file salary figures for arbitration, and given that the hearing can often become contentious, all sides usually put a pretty earnest effort into avoiding going to such hearings.

With that in mind, numerous players have agreed to one-year contracts for the 2012 season on Tuesday in order to avoid arbitration and keep things a tad simpler. Here are the AL East players that have avoided arbitration by agreeing to deals on Tuesday, and numbers on players that didn't:


Red Sox
