Teams have until early February, if I remember, to negotiate freely with that player or else take them to an independent arbitration panel.  That’s made up, typically, of non-baseball arbiters who look at counting stats and have no idea about  ERA+, wOBA, or UZR/150.

The Grilli signing is another example. They’re busy working on trades and pre-arb negotiations. At the end of the night they can just submit the paperwork for anyone they need to tender.
