CHICAGO -- Gordon Beckham and Alejandro De Aza each filed for salary arbitration Tuesday, the first step in determining each player’s pay for the 2013 season.

An arbitration hearing would be the last resort in resolving a one-year salary for each player, although the White Sox typically avoid such a procedure by coming to terms on a contract. The White Sox, along with both players, will submit salary figures by the end of the week.


Hearings for all arbitration-eligible players will be scheduled the first three weeks of February, leaving clubs and players the opportunity to work out a deal before then.

Beckham is projected to make as much as $3.1 million through arbitration for 2013 after making $520,000 last season, while De Aza is projected to make as much as $1.7 million after making $495,000 in 2012.

Salary projections are based on major-league production and service time.

The White Sox are loosely projected for a $109 million payroll in 2013, a number that includes the likely salaries for both Beckham and De Aza.
