Correspondent Yoon-Jun Ko = Luis Araez, who pushed out Aaron Judge last season to become the American League batting champion, won the Salary Adjustment Committee.
‘MLB Network’ reporter Mark Finesand reported on the 3rd (Korean time), “Araez won the salary adjustment committee and received an annual salary of $6.1 million.”스포츠토토
Araez was recently traded from the Minnesota Twins to the Miami Marlins. Before he was traded, he had a disagreement with Minnesota over salary, and it went to the conciliation committee instead of negotiations. At the time, Araez offered $6.1 million and the club offered $5 million.
And with the trade, Miami took over the fight, and eventually the arbitration committee sided with Araez. He has two more rounds of salary adjustment eligibility left.
Ara Ez recorded a batting average of 0.316, 8 homers, 49 RBIs, 88 points, and an OPS of 0.795 last year, and even won the Silver Slugger with his first All-Star.
Araez, who moved to Miami, will be the starting second baseman and will form the infield with first baseman Garrett Cooper, third baseman Gene Segura, and shortstop Joey Wendell.
