Seven Nationals players filed for arbitration on Tuesday evening, a formality ahead of this Friday’s deadline for the sides to exchange salary figures.

Roger Bernadina, Tyler Clippard, Ian Desmond, Ross Detwiler, Craig Stammen, Drew Storen and Jordan Zimmermann were the seven players to file their arbitration paperwork, according to the MLB Players Association. And, each stands to receive modest to significant salary increases for next season.

After salary figures are exchanged, and even before then, the Nationals and the players can still reach a deal to avoid arbitration before hearings begin in early February.
