Pelfrey, Torres, Ramirez, Acosta File For Arbitration

Mike Pelfrey, Manny Acosta, Ramon Ramirez, and Andres Torres all filed for arbitration before the midnight deadline last night.

Pelfrey earned $3.925 million, Torres earned $2.2 million and Ramirez earned $1.65 million in 2011. They are all expected to get significant raises for the upcoming season.

Tuesday is the deadline for teams and players to exchange salary arbitration figures. If both parties cannot settle on a contract, they will go to a hearing in February where an arbitrator will decide between the two salary offers exchanged by both sides.

Pelfrey went 7-13 with a 4.74 ERA in 33 starts last season. Acosta went 4-1 with a 3.45 ERA in 44 appearances. Ramirez went 3-3 with a 2.62 ERA in 66 appearances last season with the San Francisco Giants. Torres hit .221 with 24 doubles, one triple, four home runs, 19 RBIs, 19 stolen bases and a .643 on-base-plus-slugging percentage also with the San Francisco Giants.
