Nine Red Sox — Alfredo Aceves, Andrew Bailey, Daniel Bard, Craig Breslow, Jacoby Ellsbury, Joel Hanrahan, Andrew Miller, Franklin Morales, and Jarrod Saltalamacchia — filed for salary arbitration Tuesday.
The sides will exchange figures Friday. The first hearings will begin Feb. 1 in Phoenix.
The players are considered signed for the coming season and the likely outcome is that they will agree to terms before a hearing. If the sides go to a hearing, a three-person panel picks the salary proposed by either the team or player.
