The Major League Baseball Players Association announced Tuesday that 175 players filed for salary arbitration, including six Twins.

Lefthander Brian Duensing, righthander Casey Fien, lefthander Tommy Milone, infielder Eduardo Nunez, third baseman Trevor Plouffe and outfielder Jordan Schafer all filed for arbitration.

Salary arbitration figures will be exchanged Friday, with hearings taking place from Feb. 1-21, unless teams and players agree to a deal before their scheduled hearings.

Plouffe, who made $2.35 million last season, and Duensing, who made $2 million, stand to earn the largest raises.
