The Padres' streak of not going to a salary-arbitration hearing will continue, as the team reached agreement with its four remaining arbitration-eligible players in the 24 hours prior to Friday's deadline for exchanging salary figures.

The last time the Padres went to a salary-arbitration hearing with a player was with Andrew Cashner in 2014.
