Reds exchange salary figures with six arbitration-eligible players

Friday marked the deadline for players and teams to exchange salary figures for arbitration. If necessary, salary arbitration hearings will be held between Feb. 4 and Feb. 20.

Here is a look at the figures from the Reds, courtesy of CBS Sports:

Homer Bailey: player $5.8M, team $4.75M

Shin-Soo Choo: player $8M, team $6.75M

Chris Heisey: player $1.65M, team $1.05M

Mat Latos: player $4.7M, team $4.15

Mike Leake: player $3.5M, team $2.65M

Alfredo Simon: player $1.05M, team $750,000

The Reds avoided arbitration with Logan Ondrusek by inking the right-hander to a two-year deal on Thursday.

Cincinnati hasn't gone to the arbitration table since 2004 with Chris Reitsma. As you can see, it is a pretty rare occurrence when a team and a player can't strike an accord before then. Neither side likes to go present their case to a neutral arbitrator in fear of losing.
