Three more players who could receive contract extensions before Opening Day: Blue Jays outfielder Alex Rios, Reds third baseman Edwin Encarnacion and Pirates closer Matt Capps. Rios will earn $4.835 million in his first year of arbitration. Encarnacion and Capps will be eligible for arbitration after this season.
Are you in favor of a LTC for Edwin? Vote Yes or No on whether you would like to see him receive a LTC before Opening Day. I voted yes, as I think we could get him rather cheap as he is yet to have a breakthrough season.
