Nolan Arenado among unresolved 2019 arbitration cases

Nolan Arenado among unresolved 2019 arbitration cases Friday's arbitration deadline wasn’t a firm date for agreeing to terms. Rather, it was the end of the period to negotiate before submitting numbers for possible hearings. Negotiations can continue thereafter, but teams and players will now have to defend their submission numbers if they can’t bridge the gap before a hearing. Baseball arb panels simply pick one side’s number; that aspect of the process is designed to force the parties to the bargaining table. Rockies star Nolan Arenado is headed for a record arbitration salary, unsurprisingly. The question is by how much.

Gerrit Alan Cole (born September 8, 1990) is an American professional baseball pitcher for the Houston Astros of Major League Baseball (MLB).

The Houston Astros submitted their arbitration bids yesterday after signing fellow arb-eligibles Lance McCullers Jr., Will Harris and Brad Peacock to ne-year deals. Houston failed to reach agreements with shortstop Carlos Correa, starter Gerrit Cole and swingman Chris Devenski. All three, at least for the time being, will head toward arbitration hearings to determine their 2019 salaries.

Correa is coming off a bit of a down year, while injuries have kept him to no more than 110 games in each of the past two seasons. He filed for a $5M salary for 2019, while the Astros countered at $4.25M. MLBTR projected a $4.625M contract for Correa in this, his first year of arbitration. Both sides are surely hoping for a healthy bounce-back campaign from Correa, a core piece of their championship winning club of 2017. He struggled to the tune of .239/.323/.405 last season. Of course, most clubs would be pretty thrilled to get a 101 wRC+ from a 23-year-old shortstop.

Carlos Javier Correa Oppenheimer (born September 22, 1994) is a Puerto Rican professional baseball shortstop for the Houston Astros of Major League Baseball (MLB). The Astros selected Correa with first overall selection of the 2012 MLB draft.

Devenski, meanwhile, filed for $1.65M, with Houston countering at $1.4M – the same number MLBTR projected for the righty. Devenski has primarily come out of the pen for Houston, pitching to a 2.74 ERA over his three major-league seasons. Last year was his worst career campaign, though he was still serviceable in 47 1/3 innings, which included one start (4.18 ERA, 4.49 FIP, 4.01 xFIP). Like Correa, Devenski has two further seasons of arbitration eligibility before hitting free agency after 2021.

As reported yesterday, Cole filed at $13.5M, while the Astros countered at $11.425M. The rather large difference of $2.075M is understandable given this will be Cole’s last time through arbitration before hitting free agency. He had a stellar 2018 in his first year with the Astros, 15-5 with a 2.88 ERA and 12.4 K/9, a rather ridiculous number across 200 1/3 innings. No doubt it was a tremendous season, good for 5.3 rWAR, a far cry better than the 2.3 rWAR he accrued per season in Pittsburgh, which definitely complicates the valuation process for all parties.

Mookie Betts, Red Sox settle arbitration at $20 million

Mookie Betts, Red Sox settle arbitration at $20 million As star outfielder Mookie Betts nears free agency, his contract number moves higher and higher. On Friday, the Red Sox and Betts reportedly settled on arbitration by agreeing to a one-year deal worth $20 million. According to Jeff Passion of ESPN, both sides reportedly reached agreement on the one-year deal on Friday. Given it is only Betts’ second year of arbitration, it is a massive number for the young outfielder. Mookie Betts settled with the Boston Red Sox at $20 million, league source familiar with the agreement tells ESPN. A huge number that sets a new standard for 4+ players.

Gerrit Cole is on the Astros now, giving them a rotation that features Dallas Keuchel, Justin Verlander, and Lance McCullers. It’s hard to suggest that a core of Carlos Correa , George Springer, and Alex Bregman should be mentioned in the same breath as the words “closing window,” but the Astros will

Six other arbitration -eligible Astros players remain — including shortstop Carlos Correa , closer Roberto Osuna and starter Gerrit Cole . Teams had until noon Friday to exchange salary figures with their arbitration eligible players. If the two sides cannot come to an agreement, the salary will be

There is, of course, still time for Houston to forego arbitration with Correa/Cole/Devenski, though the common “file and trial” practice means teams typically stop negotiating one-year deals at this juncture. It is not uncommon for parties to negotiate long-term deals during this period.
