The Boston Red Sox now have avoided arbitration with three of their pitchers.
The 26-year-old Betts led the Major League Baseball in runs (129), batting average (.346) and slugging percentage (.640) last season. His almost $10 million jump is the highest arbitration raise ever received by a position player.
Betts is a second-time-eligible player. However, should the two sides fail to agree to a multi-year extension next offseason-Betts's last arbitration-eligible season before reaching free agency-the three-time All-Star could command an astronomical salary in his final year of team control; at the very least, Betts appears poised to eclipse-if not shatter-the $23MM record set by Josh Donaldson one year ago, which now marks the highest one-year arbitration salary ever. For now, let's take a look at each of the deals we know about, how they compare to the projections forecast by MLB Trade Rumors, and what this means for their role with the team heading into next season.
Matt Barnes, Xander Bogaerts, Jackie Bradley Jr., Brock Holt, Sandy Leon, Eduardo Rodriguez, Blake Swihart, Brandon Workman, Steven Wright and Betts reached one-year contracts for the 2019 season.
The Sox have already struck deals with relievers Heath Hembree and Tyler Thornburg to avoid arbitration.
