Dylan Hernandez has three new ones: Xavier Nady ($6.55MM), Jonathan Papelbon ($6.25MM), and Edwin Jackson ($2.2MM plus $200K in incentives). Papelbon tops Bobby Jenks' first-year arb reliever record of $5.6MM, set yesterday. ESPN's Jayson Stark has more; he says Papelbon and the Red Sox discussed multiyear deals but couldn't find a match. It may be revisited.
