    Can scratch off Hayes(1 year, $925k) and Fontaine(2 years, $1m AAV) Both struck deals before their arbitration hearings.

    As for the Frolik deal, I really have no clue what to make of it. At least from Chevy’s view of things. Either he got played big time by Frolik’s agent(Allen Walsh, who is a notorious hardass when it comes to negotiating, and is no dummy) or he is still questioning committing to Frolik long term.
