Official: Mets trio files for arbitration
By Adam Rubin
Ike Davis, Daniel Murphy and Bobby Parnell officially have filed for arbitration.
Barring a settlement, the sides will exchange salary figures Friday and have hearings next month in Florida.
The Mets last had an arbitration hearing in 2008, when Scott Boras won on behalf of Oliver Perez and the southpaw earned $6.5 million. Perez's hearing had snapped a streak of 16 straight seasons in which the Mets settled with all of their arbitration-eligible players.
