NEW YORK – A total of 170 major league players agreed to contracts in the hours before Friday night's arbitration deadline to exchange proposed salaries with teams, and just one reached a multiyear deal: Minnesota right-hander Chris Paddack.

After agreeing to a $2.4 million, one-year contract earlier in the day, Paddack and the Twins reached a $12.5 million, three-year deal, according to a person with knowledge of the negotiations.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the deal was pending completion of a physical exam.
