Pitcher Lusardo wins MLB salary adjustment… Second winner of the year
Miami Marlins pitcher Jesús Rusardo (26) became the second player to win the Major League Baseball (MLB) salary adjustment this year.
The Associated Press reported on the 4th (Korean time) that the MLB Salary Adjustment Committee sided with Rusardo, who requested $2.45 million instead of the Miami club’s $2.1 million offer.
The Salary Adjustment Committee, which consists of three panels, listens to the opinions of the clubs and players, and decides the opinion of one side that is reasonable with a majority vote as the final salary. 토토사이트
The first player to win this year’s salary adjustment is last year’s American League batting champion Luis Arraes, who wanted $6.1 million for Lusardo’s teammate.
Peruvian left-hander Rusardo went 4-7 with a 3.32 ERA as a starter last year.
He struck out 120 in 100⅓ innings.
In three annual salary adjustment committee verdicts this year, the club won once and the player won twice.
The results of the annual salary adjustment between Choi Ji-man (32, Pittsburgh Pirates), who requested $5.4 million, and the Pittsburgh club, which faced $4.65 million, will be released in the middle of this month.
