The Major League Baseball salary arbitration filing deadline has passed, and seven Washington Nationals have filed. Via Bill Ladson of MLB.com:
As part of the process, the arbitration filing period ran from Jan. 5 until Friday, with Jan. 17 set as the day for salary arbitration figures to be exchanged. From there, salary arbitration hearings are from Feb. 1-21 in St. Petersburg.
The most interesting name on that list might be first baseman/left fielder Michael Morse. Morse had a breakout season offensively for Washington, hitting .303 with 31 home runs and 95 runs batted in, and made just $1.05 million last year. Look for Morse to get a rather hefty pay raise in arbitration.
