Arbitration decision favors Fried and not Braves

ATLANTA ( Associated Press) — Pitcher Max Fried won his salary arbitration case against the Atlanta Braves, receiving a salary of $6.85 million instead of the $6.6 million offered by the defending Series champions.

Walt de Trex, Robert Hermann and John Woods delivered their verdict on Wednesday, a day after hearing arguments.

Clubs have a 9-4 lead in decisions this year. New York Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge is the only player to be heard this week.

He asks for $21 million and the club offers $17 million.

Fried is the second brave player in favor of this year’s decision. Shortstop Dansby Swanson had demanded $10 million.

Outfielder Adam Duvall ($9,275,000), third baseman Austin Riley ($3.95 million) and injured reliever Luke Jackson ($3.6 million) all lost their hearing.

Fried, a 28-year-old left-hander, took a 14-7 lead last year with a 3.04 ERA. His record in the post season was 2-2.

After losing Game 2 of the World Series to Houston, Fried played six shutout innings in Game 6, helping the Braves win for the first time since 1995.

Fried earned $3.5 million last year and is eligible for free agency after the 2024 season.

The pitcher has a 7–2 record and 2.77 ERA this season. Except for contractual and wage comparisons, no data or evidence is accepted in arbitration appeals after 1 March.

The decision was made by Major League Baseball and the players’ union after they signed a contract ending the lockdown.

Seattle second baseman and outfielder Adam Frazier ($8 million) and Kansas City outfielder Andrew Benintendi ($8.5 million) also won their resources.

Others who did not agree with the ruling were outfielder in San Luis, Tyler O’Neill (3.4 million); Kansas City fielder Nicky Lopez ($2.55 million); Venezuelan right-hander from Miami, Pablo López and his drummer partner Jacob Stallings (both with 2.45 million); Milwaukee right-hander Adrian Houser ($2,425,000), as well as Cincinnati pitcher Lucas Sims ($1.2 million).

Arbitration hearings usually take place during the first three weeks of February. This time they were postponed due to the strike.
