American League MVP Josh Hamilton and National League MVP Joey Votto were among the 119 players who filed for salary arbitration yesterday.

Hamilton earned $3.25 million last season and is in his second year of eligibility, while Votto is arbitration-eligible for the first time. Jon Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer spoke with a few agents about Votto’s arbitration case and the general consensus is that he will ask for $8.5-9.5 million, with the Reds countering at around $7 million.

Maury Brown from Biz of Baseball has a complete list of players who have filed, divided by team.

Teams and players now have until Monday before salary figures are exchanged. We should see quite a few signings between now and then, so keep it here for the latest.
