Arbitration hearing dates have been set for the three remaining arbitration cases involving the Rangers. The dates (all hearings would be in Tampa, if necessary):

Elvis Andrus: Feb. 9

Mike Napoli: Feb. 15

Nelson Cruz: Feb. 17

The team and the player have until that hearing date -- really, they have until right before the hearing starts -- to come up with a deal. The Rangers haven't gone to a hearing since 2000 (Lee Stevens).

The largest gap with those remaining players is Mike Napoli, who asked for $11.5 million this season and the Rangers countered with $8.3, a $3.2 million difference.

Andrus and the club are $950,000 apart and Cruz and the club are $2 million apart (Cruz submitted $7.5 million with the club countering at $5.5).
