Unresolved MLB arbitration roundup: OFs Betts, Springer highlight group

Reuters

The deadline for teams to avoid arbitration with their eligible players was 1 p.m. EST on Friday, and the majority of cases were resolved. However, a good deal of notable players still don't have a contract in place for 2018.

All-Star outfielders Mookie Betts (Boston Red Sox) and George Springer (Houston Astros) headline the group of players set to head to an arbitration hearing with their respective clubs next month. Any player who didn't reach a deal Friday can still do so before a hearing is necessary.
