The Arbitration Deadline is today

Later on this afternoon, at 1PM Eastern Time, the deadline for arbitration filing ends. The Detroit Tigers have previously settled with RP Phil Coke and OF Don Kelly. 

Detroit still has RP Al Alburquerque, C Alex Avila, OF Andy Dirks, OF Austin Jackson, and SP’s Max Scherzer and Rick Porcello, who are arbitration eligible.

What this means is:
 By 1PM today, if the Tigers have not reached a settlement with each player, the player/and or his agent, will submit a salary proposal and the team will also submit a salary proposal to the arbitrator who will then weigh each proposal and declare a salary compromise that the player will earn for the 2014 season.
