Red Sox are offering arbitration to free agents
Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

BOSTON (AP) -- The Red Sox are offering arbitration to pitcher Pedro Martinez.

The team will also offer arbitration to catcher Jason Varitek, shortstop Orlando Cabrera, pitchers Derek Lowe, Pedro Astacio and Mike Myers, infielder Pokey Reese, first baseman David McCarty and outfielder Gabe Kapler.

Players have until December 19th to accept or reject arbitration and can negotiate with any team until that deadline.

If a player accepts, he is considered signed by Boston for 2005 for a salary to be determined by an arbitrator after the player and team exchange salary proposals.

If a player rejects the offer of arbitration, he can negotiate with any team. If he doesnÔŅĹt re-sign with the Red Sox by January eighth, he canÔŅĹt sign with them until May first.

The six free agents not offered arbitration are righthanders Terry Adams, Curtis Leskanic, Ramiro Mendoza and Scott Williamson, infielders Ricky Gutierrez and designated hitter Ellis Burks, who has said heÔŅĹll retire.
