Red Sox avoid arbitration with SS Xander Bogaerts, eight others

Red Sox avoid arbitration with SS Xander Bogaerts, eight others

Last year, the two sides also couldn't agree to a contract, which prompted the Red Sox to renew his deal (his third Major League Baseball season) at $950,000.

The Red Sox were more successful with their other nine arbitration-eligible players, inking left-hander Drew Pomeranz to a one-year deal for $8.5 million, which is a bit below the $9.1 million he had been projected to earn by MLB Trade Rumors. Pomeranz and Kelly are set to become free agents next offseason. The renewal meant that no agreement was reached, and as a result the general assumption was that the Red Sox and Betts would be headed down the same road again this time around. Betts is eligible for arbitration for the first time in his career this offseason and could be looking for a salary similar to the record deal the Chicago Cubs handed third baseman Kris Bryant (one year, $10.85 million) on Friday in his first year of eligibility.

The successful launch comes after the ISRO's backup navigation spacecraft IRNSS-1H ended in a failure in August past year . Of 31 satellites, three are Indian and 28 are from Canada, Finland, France, South Korea, the United Kingdom and the US.

Pomeranz made $4.45 million last season. Betts was both an American League All-Star and a Gold Glove victor for the second consecutive season, and he finished sixth in the AL Most Valuable Player voting. According to NBC Sports Boston, Bogaerts will sign a one-year, $7.5 million deal. Bryant later set a new record in receiving $1.05 million from the Cubs.
