Every year, it seems, the Steve Jeltz contract negotiations are among the thorniest the Phillies have to deal with. Once again, however, the sides stopped short of an arbitration hearing. The Phillies announced yesterday that Jeltz had agreed to a one-year contract for $410,000, plus a potential $60,000 in performance bonuses. Last season, Jeltz made a base salary of $250,000, plus $5,000 for appearing in half the Phillies games. He batted a career-high .243 and had filed for $500,000 in arbitration.

The local firefighters' union has given notice that it intends to go to arbitration rather than accept the borough's offer for the renewal of its two-year contract. The current two-year contract expires at midnight tonight. "It's not to be taken as an adversarial stance," said John Remillard, vice president of the firefighters' union. "We're very hopeful that we can work this out. " But neither side is holding its breath. Negotiators for the borough and the firefighters have not met in several weeks, and no new meetings have been scheduled.

After the expansion draft, after the winter meetings, after all the other moves were made, Phillies general manager Lee Thomas took two final steps last offseason. Veteran reliever Larry Andersen and journeyman outfielder Jim Eisenreich signed free-agent contracts with the Phillies. Both played key roles as the surprising Phillies went all the way to the World Series. Today, both players are free agents again after the Phillies declined to offer salary arbitration. That means that, if they don't re-sign, the Phillies will receive no compensation.

Phillies free-agent centerfielder Aaron Rowand almost certainly will be offered arbitration by tonight's deadline, MLB.com reported yesterday on the Phillies' Web site. The report described the move, which must be made by 11:59 p.m. Eastern time, as procedural to guarantee that they get a compensatory draft pick should he sign with another team. According to the report, Rowand is a Type A free agent, which would entitle the Phillies to both a first-round pick and a "sandwich" pick between the first and second rounds from the team that signs Rowand.

Chicago Cubs righthander Mark Prior voided the final year of his contract, making him eligible for salary arbitration. Prior's agent, John Boggs, said yesterday that the pitcher notified the team of his decision on Nov. 29. His deal, agreed to in 2001 after he was drafted, allowed him to void the contract after 2004 or 2005, but only if he had accumulated enough service time to be eligible for arbitration. He just missed having enough service time after 2004. His first contract had called for a $2.75 million salary next year, and he is likely to earn far more after arbitration.

MAYOR NUTTER and the city's police union announced yesterday that they are accepting a three-year contract arbitration award that includes a series of raises totaling 9.5 percent and has no cuts in pension or health-care benefits for the city's roughly 6,000 police officers. The award will cost the city $218 million in its five-year financial plan - about $97 million more than was anticipated. Nutter said the city has realized $29 million in savings from previous changes to police health-care benefits and so views the cost of the award to be less than $70 million over budget.

An arbitrator ruled that nine part-time city recreation workers who were fired last year for double-dipping in government salaries must be reinstated and awarded back pay.

They included 10 full-time teachers, two U.S. Postal Service workers, and an investigator for the state Attorney General's Office.

TRENTON New Jersey Democrats are pushing a proposal through the Legislature to extend a cap on pay raises for police and firefighter unions set to expire at the end of the month. But Republicans, who have championed the 2 percent cap as a key tool in slowing the growth of property taxes, say the bill includes provisions that would render the 2010 law useless. The cap applies to an increase in base salaries for police and firefighter unions that decide to enter arbitration. Gov. Christie has said property taxes grew an average of 1.7 percent last year, down from an average of 7 percent in the 10 years before he took office.

It remains to be seen exactly where Kyle Kendrick slots in the Phillies' rotation this season, but the team now knows what his work will cost. The two sides avoided salary arbitration Thursday when the veteran righthander agreed to a one-year deal worth $7.675 million plus award bonuses. The deal represents a $3.175 million raise for the 29-year-old righthander with a career 64-55 record and a 4.38 ERA. For the first time since 2010, Kendrick opened last season as part of the starting rotation and got off to a terrific start, posting a 7-4 record and a 3.46 ERA through his first 16 starts.
