(AP) AL Cy Young winner Max Scherzer and major league home run champion Chris Davis have reached rich deals on the day that players and teams swapped dollar figures for salary arbitration.


A total of 57 players exchanged amounts with their clubs on Friday, and 15 of them later settled.


Arbitration hearings are scheduled to be held in February. Last year, all cases settled before going that far.


Scherzer and the Detroit Tigers reached a one-season deal for $15,525,000 that leaves him less than a year from free agency. Davis and the Baltimore Orioles agreed at $10.35 million.


Among the players still in arbitration, Cleveland pitcher Justin Masterson asked for the most at $11.8 million. The Indians offered $8.05 million.


Also, NL Cy Young winner Clayton Kershaw and the Los Angeles Dodgers completed their seven-year contract worth $215 million, a record for a pitcher.
