The panel hearing MLB’s arbitration cases this winter won’t have to sort anything out with the Boston Red Sox and their players.
The Red Sox reached agreements with all 12 players eligible for arbitration. Mookie Betts reportedly landed a massive haul and will make $20 million in 2019, but other key figures like Jackie Bradley Jr. and Xander Bogaerts also were arbitration-eligible this offseason.
Here’s how all 12 players fared, according to The Boston Globe’s Alex Speier.
Mookie Betts — $20 million
Xander Bogaerts — $12 million
Jackie Bradley Jr. — $8.55 million
Eduardo Rodriguez — $4.33 million
Brock Holt — $3.575 million
Sandy Leon — $2.475 million
Tyler Thornburg — $1.75 million
Matt Barnes — $1.6 million
Steven Wright — $1.375 million
Heath Hembree — $1.31 million
Brandon Workman — $1.15 million
Blake Swihart — $910 thousand
Thornburg agreed to his deal in late November, while Wright and Hembree hashed their deals out Thursday. All other players’ deals were reported Friday.
This was the final year of arbitration for Bogaerts, Thornburg and Holt, so they will join Rick Porcello, Chris Sale, Mitch Moreland, Steve Pearce and Eduardo Nunez as free agents next offseason.
