Friday at 10 a.m. PT was the deadline for unsigned arbitration-eligible players to exchange salary figures with the club. The team and player can continue negotiating until a February hearing is held and a decision announced.

Under president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman, the Dodgers have warned players they will go to a hearing on any case not settled by the exchange of figures. No Dodger has gone to a hearing during Friedman's tenure, which began in October 2014.

Since the inception of salary arbitration 43 years ago, the Dodgers are 14-6 in cases decided by a hearing and 6-1 in their last seven cases, dating to 1991. That includes the most recent wins over Joe Beimel in 2007 and Eric Gagne in 2004.

The last player to win a hearing with the Dodgers was Terry Adams in 2001. The club's first arbitration case was in 1975, when Ron Cey was awarded a salary of $56,000 instead of the club's submission of $47,000.
