(NEW YORK, AP) — Houston designated hitter Chris Carter, Kansas City reliever Kelvin Herrera and New York Mets closer Jennry Mejia are among 26 players with less than three years of major league service who have qualified for salary arbitration.
Oakland third baseman Josh Donaldson, New York Yankees pitcher David Phelps, Los Angeles Dodgers second baseman Dee Gordon and Los Angeles Angels pitcher Garrett Richards also are among the so-called Super 2s.
Chicago White Sox reliever Javy Guerra, Houston infielder Marwin Gonzalez and Chicago White Sox pitcher Jose Quintana were the last players to make it, with 2 years, 133 days of major league service, up from 122 days last year and down from 139 after the 2012 season.
