Luis Araez won the salary adjustment hearing.
Mark Fiinsand of the US’MLB.com’ said on social media (SNS) on the 3rd (Korean time), “According to sources, Araez won the salary adjustment hearing against the Miami Marlins.” He will receive 6.1 million dollars (approximately 7.5 billion won). The Minnesota Twins offered an annual salary of 5 million dollars (approximately 6.1 billion won), and the amount did not change even after moving to Miami.”
Araez became the first player to win a salary adjustment hearing this season. On the 2nd, Diego Castillo (Seattle Mariners) lost. Castillo asked for an annual salary of $3.225 million (about 4 billion won), but Seattle offered $2.95 million (about 3.6 billion won). In the end, it went to the annual salary adjustment committee and raised Seattle’s hand. 먹튀검증
Araez first stepped on the major league stage in Minnesota in the 2019 season. In his debut season, he had an impressive season with 109 hits in 326 at-bats, a batting average of 0.334, and an OPS of 0.838. In the 2020 season, which was shortened in the aftermath of Corona 19, he recorded a batting average of 0.321. In the 2021 season, he slowed down for a while with a batting average of 0.294, but last season, he recorded 173 hits in 547 at bats, 8 home runs, 49 RBIs, a batting average of 0.316 OPS 0.795, and became the American League batting king. He also became the first recipient of the Silver Slugger utility category.
And Araez made a nest in the new team. Miami traded Araez for Pablo Lopez and two prospects. ‘MLB.com’ claimed, “Miami plans to use Araez as second baseman. He will also play an active role as a backup first baseman for former All-Star Garrett Cooper.”
“Last month, Miami avoided salary negotiations with Cooper, catcher Jacob Stallings, infielder Joey Wendell, relievers JT Chacois and Tanner Scott.” I couldn’t,” he added.
