Salary arbitration figures will be exchanged between the parties on Friday, with the actual hearings scheduled to take place from February 1st-21st - provided that the aforementioned players don't strike deals with the Twins prior to their scheduled hearings.

With Plouffe and Duensing scheduled to receive significant raises in arbitration, don't be surprised if the Twins aggressively seekcompromises prior to each player's individual hearing.
