Jose Iglesias, Tigers: Iglesias filed at $6.8MM, Detroit countered at $5.6MM

Tigers avoid arbitration with 3 players, but Jose Iglesias still unsigned.

January 13 in Tigers and mlb history:

1900: The Cincinnati Reds returned Kid Elberfeld to Detroit (American) as part of a conditional deal.
1900: The Cincinnati Reds returned Emil Frisk to Detroit (American) following previous purchase.

1958: New York Senator Kenneth Keating proposes a ban within 100-mile radius on telecasts into minor league territories.

1972: Former umpire, now housewife, Bernice Gera wins her lawsuit against Organized Baseball, initiated on March 15, 1971. Gera is slated to umpire in the New York-Pennsylvania League starting in June. She will umpire just one game, making her point before deciding to call it quits.

1981: The Detroit Tigers drafted Bob Melvin in the 1st round (2nd pick) of the 1981 amateur draft (January Secondary).
1981: The Detroit Tigers drafted Mike Sharperson in the 4th round of the 1981 amateur draft (January), but was not signed.

1982: Hank Aaron and Frank Robinson win election to the Hall of Fame in their first year of eligibility. Aaron established a major league record with 755 home runs, while Robinson led the Baltimore Orioles to two World Championships and was named Most Valuable Player in both the American and National Leagues.
Aaron falls nine votes shy of becoming the first-ever unanimous selection, and his 97.8 election percentage is second only to Ty Cobb's 98.2 percent in the inaugural 1936 election. Robinson was also the first African-American manager in major league history.

1989: The Detroit Tigers signed Doyle Alexander as a free agent.

1994: The Detroit Tigers signed Junior Felix as a free agent.

1995: Baseball's executive council approves the use of replacement players for spring training and regular season games. With the Players' Association on strike, the owners say they will look to retired players, minor leaguers and amateurs to fill out their rosters.

2004: The Detroit Tigers signed Ben Petrick as a free agent.

2005: Under the watchful eye of national lawmakers, Major League Baseball and the Players' Association agree in principle on a stricter steroid testing policy. The new program will randomly test players year-round, with first-time offenders suspended for 10 days and a fourth violation resulting in a one year ban for the offending player. The punishments will later be increased significantly.

2009: The Detroit Tigers signed Fu-Te Ni as a free agent.

2010: The Detroit Tigers signed Kory Casto as a free agent.
2010: The Detroit Tigers signed Jason Waddell as a free agent.
