None of these are certain to go all the way through the arbitration process. It's likely most, if not all, will be settled before the hearings. Still, the payroll will increase substantially. If you had to guess which (if any) of these players would go all the way to hearings, who would you choose?

None.

DD has never gone to arbitration with a player in his tenure with the Tigers.

I don't see that not continuing.

But if I had to pick one, I would say Scherzer, being as how he is a Boras client.

Boesch is a Boras client, too. :D

my best guess would be Porcello. With all the talk surrounding him in trade, I'll guess that Porcello is going to be feeling a little undervalued.

I'd think of them all, Boesch goes to the table. Pretty limited ML service. What there has been, hasn't been shoutable.

Pretty cheap savings, but if he's not in the plans anyway

He made 502k last year.

Tigers give him a slight bump to say........525,000
He asks for like 800k+.

I think the Tigers win that one at the table, and save some meal money.
It also makes him more desirable in a trade somewhere. (due to the cheaper contract)

All the others have the gravitas to have a deal "worked out"

Boesch is expected around $2M according to recent press. This is why I was surprised to see the team tender him a contract.

If that's the case he sure ought to go to the table.
Making a 400% raise, who does he think he is the CEO of right-field ???

I think that because he is already in the dog house and probably doesn't want the team proclaiming his lack of willingness to work with hitting instructors and the like, he is going to take what is offered and shut up about it.

well, it really depends on Boesch's expectations.

Many would say it depends on what Boesch did this winter to improve his swing and improve his plate patience.

Of all the Tigers hitters, he needed to play Fall and/or Winter Ball more than Santiago.

<Santiago>

Four years in a row, Santiago played winter ball. Last winter he didn't and he regressed at the plate in 2012. I'm hoping this winter helps him get back on track. Regardless of the outcome, we gotta give Ramon props for investing the effort.
