The Red Sox got every one of their salary arbitration-eligible player signed Friday – except, arguably, the most important one.

On the day which teams and players exchanged salary arbitration requests, the Sox came to an agreement with nine players: Drew Pomeranz ($8.5 million); Xander Bogaerts ($7.05 million); Jackie Bradley Jr. ($6.1 million); Joe Kelly ($3.825 million); Eduardo Rodriguez ($2.375 million); Brock Holt ($2.225 million); Sandy Leon ($1.950 million); Christian Vazquez ($1.450 million) and Brandon Workman ($835,000).
