It was simply a formality, but the Phillies four arbitration-eligible players were among 128 players who officially filed for salary arbitration on Friday.

Pitchers Joe Blanton and Chad Durbin, catcher Carlos Ruiz and outfielder Shane Victorino filed. Blanton made $5.475 million last year, Durbin $1.635 million, Ruiz $450,000 and Victorino $3.125 million.

The players and the Phillies must exchange salary figures by Tuesday. If the sides cannot work out a deal, hearings are scheduled to begin Feb. 1.

The Phillies had 10 arbitration-eligible players last year and avoided a hearing with all of them.
