Rays Avoid Arbitration with Some, but Not All

by JC De La Torre

The Rays were able to settle with Jason Bartlett and Grant Balfour to avoid arbitration but failed to secure deals for Willie Aybar and All-Star catcher Dioner Navarro. Both will head to arbitration.

Balfour signed a 1-yr deal worth $1.4-million, while Bartlett also signed a 1-yr deal but he went for $1.98 million.

Arbitration for Aybar and Navarro will take place some time next month.
