    AL champion Rays avoid arbitration with Glasnow, 3 others

    The Tampa Bay Rays agreed to terms on contracts for next season with four of the team’s six arbitration-eligible players, including right-handed pitcher Tyler Glasnow. Outfielder Manuel Margot, infielder Joey Wendle and right-hander Yonny Chirinos also reached agreements Friday, leaving first baseman Ji-Man Choi and left-hander Ryan Yarbrough as the only members of the AL champions heading to arbitration hearings. Choi, who's seeking $2,450,000 while the Rays are offering $1,850,000, earned the $427,148 prorated portion of his scheduled $1,150,000 salary while playing solid defense and batting .230 with three homers and 16 RBIs in 42 games last season.
