The lone arbitration-eligible player is left-handed reliever Brad Hand. Two other players who had been arbitration-eligible -- right-hander Carter Capps and lefty Robbie Erlin -- previously had agreed to terms.

Even after salary-arbitration figures are exchanged this afternoon, the Padres and Hand can continue to negotiate right up through their arbitration hearing. Hearings take place in February.
