Major League Baseball clubs on Thursday were racing to beat Friday's arbitration deadline to sign players.
If they did not beat the deadline, they would be facing arbitration hearings next month. Arbitration figures are scheduled to be exchanged Friday if no deal is reached.
Among Thursday's signings were:
--Right-handed starter Neftali Feliz, whose season ended in May with Tommy John surgery, agreed to a one-year, $2.9 million deal with the Texas Rangers. He had a 3.16 ERA after being converted from a reliever.
--Right-hander Drew Storen agreed to a one-year, $2.5 million deal with the Washington Nationals. The reliever had a 2.37 ERA in a 30 1/2 innings after returning from elbow surgery.
--The Milwaukee Brewers announced they have agreed to a one-year deal with outfielder Carlos Gomez for a reported $4.3 million. He hit .260 with 19 home runs last season.
--MLB.com reported the Los Angeles Angels are close to reaching a two-year, $9 million deal with third baseman Alberto Callaspo.
--The New York Mets and Bobby Parnell agreed to a one-year $1.7 million contract. Parnell had a 5-4 record with a 2.49 ERA last season.
--The Chicago Cubs and right-hander Matt Garza agreed to a one-year, $10.25 million contract. He had a 3.91 ERA before being shut down in mid-July.
--Right-hander Joba Chamberlain, who pitched only two months last season because of pair of injuries, agreed to a one-year contract with the New York Yankees. He will make $1,875,000 this season, according to the New York Post. He made $1.65 million last season.
--The Cincinnati Reds and right-hander Logan Ondrusek reached a two-year deal, but no terms were announced. The reliever was 5-2 last season with a 3.46 ERA.
--Acquired earlier this offseason, left-hander Tony Sipp agreed to a one-year, $1.275 million deal with the Arizona Diamondbacks. The reliever had a 4.42 ERA last season.
