Nationals settle contract statuses for 'zero-to-three' players
Every spring about this time, teams must sign the "zero-to-three" players on their 40-man roster, the players who have less than three years of major league experience and, therefore, make between $400,000 and $500,000 and are not eligible for salary arbitration. Teams either negotiate a salary in that range, or they can't come to terms and assign them a salary. It's mostly a formality.
