Rockies: Four-time AllStar third baseman Nolan Arenado asked for $30 million in salary arbitration, while Colorado off- ered $24 million. Arenado, who has won six straight Gold Glove Awards and four consecutive Silver Slugger Awards, made $17.85 million last year.
Twins: Right-hander Kyle Gibson and left fielder Eddie Rosario are among eight players who avoided arbitration by agreeing to one-year contracts.
Rays: Catcher Mike Zunino, third baseman Matt Duffy and relief pitcher Chaz Roe agreed to oneyear contracts.
Padres: Wil Myers said he’s moving back to the Padres’ crowded outfield, indicating that San Diego probably is still in the market for a third baseman.
