Cardinals outfielders Jon Jay and Peter Bourjos and infielder Daniel Descalso were among the 146 major-league players who filed for salary arbitration Tuesday. Cy Young Award winners Max Scherzer of Detroit and Clayton Kershaw of Los Angeles, 2012 Cy Young winner David Price of Tampa Bay and Baltimore first baseman Chris Davis, who led the majors in home runs last season, headlined the filings. Players with three years’ big-league service and less than six are eligible to file although a small percentage of players with more than two full seasons in the majors also is eligible. On Friday, the players and front offices will file their respective asking figures for 2014 salaries for the players. Cases not resolved will be heard by three arbitrators in early February in St. Petersburg, Fla., but not one went that far last winter for the first time since 1974.
