The biggest arbitration case in terms of both salary and the gap between sides involves Springer, who is asking for $22.5 million while the Houston Astros are offering the outfielder $17.5 million.
Realmuto and the Philadelphia Phillies, meanwhile, are headed to arbitration over a $2.4 million gap. The catcher filed at $12.4 million while the Phillies filed at $10 million.
Four Los Angeles Dodgers — Joc Pederson, Max Muncy, Chris Taylor and Pedro Baez — are expected to hit arbitration. Pederson asked for $9.5 million with the Dodgers offering $7.75 million. They offered $4 million to Muncy, who asked for $4.675 million.
The Dodgers haven’t been to an arbitration case since 2007 and haven’t lost one since 2001.
