    Parnell, Davis and Murphy Arbitration Deals

    Adam Rubin
    Bobby Parnell and the Mets have avoided arbitration by agreeing to a $1.7 million contract for 2013. Parnell is not eligible for free agency until after the 2015 season. He earned $504,000 last season.

    The Mets still have two remaining arbitration-eligible players: Ike Davis and Daniel Murphy.

    The club has not been discussing a multi-year deal with either, major league sources recently told ESPNNewYork.com.

    AdamRubinESPN Josh Thole gets a great deal from #BlueJays. Arbitration-eligible as Super Two, agrees to two-year, $2.5M deal with team option for 2015.

    The Mets signed former Oakland catcher Landon Powell to a minor-league contract with an invitation to major-league camp.

    Powell, 30, is a switch-hitter who could complement John Buck on the big-league roster, or back up top prospect Travis d’Arnaud in Triple-A Las Vegas. He also can play first base. Anthony Recker is the club’s other available backup catcher.

    Powell posted a .729 on-base plus slugging percentage with Houston’s Triple-A affiliate last season. With Oakland from 2009 to 2011, he hit .207 with 10 homers in 406 plate appearances.

    According to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, Ike Davis and Daniel Murphy have filed for arbitration.

    Davis is seeking $3.7 million, and the Mets have countered with a $2.825 million offer.

    Murphy is seeking $3.4 million, and the Mets have countered with a $2.55 million offer.

    Both Davis and Murphy made the league minimum last year.

    MLB Trade Rumors has predicted Davis would earn $2.8 million, and Murphy would earn $3 million through the arbitration process.

    If there is no settlement, Davis’ and Murphy’s salaries will be settled by an arbitrator in February.

    It’s worth noting Davis is “Super Two” eligible this year, and will have three more years of arbitration before he can become a free agent. He cannot earn less than 80 percent of his prior year’s salary through the arbitration process.

    Powell used to be an interesting story. He was very advanced as a H.S. player. I think took his GED in order to be eligible for the draft a year early as a junior H.S. on the advice of Scott Boras, but no one picked him and he went to the University of South Carolina instead - and was drafted in the first round by Billie Beane and the A's.

    He had a weight problem at one point - not sure if he still does. Definitely a catcher.

    Good for them, but it seems too early for Ike?

    Mets first baseman Ike Davis has avoided arbitration by signing a one-year deal worth $3.125 million, according to a person with knowledge of the situation. The person requested anonymity because the deal was not yet official.

    If Thole can get 2.5 over 2 years, I might as well give it a shot.

    Ike Davis and the Mets have settled to avoid arbitration, a baseball source tells ESPNNewYork.com.

    It's believed Davis will earn $3.125 million in 2013. He was a "Super Two" -- meaning he has three more years of arbitration eligibility before being eligible for free agency after the 2016 season.

    Davis had asked for $3.7 million in papers filed Friday, with the Mets countering at $2.825 million.

    Davis' settlement leaves only Daniel Murphy unresolved as far as arbitration-eligible players.

    Bobby Parnell settled for $1.7 million Thursday.

    Daniel Murphy has settled to avoid an arbitration hearing. He will earn slightly less than the $2.975 million midpoint of his asking price and the team's offer, a baseball source told ESPNNewYork.com.
