With the deadline to submit salary numbers on Tuesday at 1pm (ET), the Braves managed to settle with only three of its eight arbitration-eligible players yesterday, pushing the team to its file and trial stage with shortstop Dansby Swanson, outfielder Adam Duvall, third baseman Austin Riley, starting pitcher Max Fried and reliever Luke Jackson. Atlanta was able to come to agreements with the trio of A.J. Minter, Tyler Matzek and Sean Newcomb.

In regards to the three players the Braves did come to an agreement with yesterday, the team signed Minter for $2.2 million, Matzek for $1.4 million and Newcomb for $900K. The list below, derived from Batter Power, shows the five players Atlanta did not settle with, including the team’s offer and each player’s requested salary…

Duvall $10.275 / Braves $9.275M

Fried $6.85M / Braves $6.6M

Jackson $4M / Braves $3.6

Riley $4.2M / Braves $3.95M

Swanson $10M / Braves $9.25M

Because of the late start to spring training, everything has essentially been pushed back, meaning hearings for arb eligible players are likely to carry over into the 2022 regular season. Hopefully the Braves and the five unsigned players can work these details out quickly.
