Mookie Betts Avoids Arbitration With Red Sox, Reportedly Agrees To $20 Million Salary
13 January, 2019, 20:55
Fresh off a historic 2018 campaign in which he slashed an otherworldly.346/.438/.640 en route to a World Series title, Betts earned himself a $9.5MM raise from his previous salary. The prospect of the Red Sox arguing for a lower salary for the MVP victor would have been a particularly unflattering look for the team this year and also serve as a red flag for their chances to come to an agreement on a contract extension for Betts.
Betts made $10.5 million last season. His record-setting deal will establish the new standard for players with four-plus years of Major League Baseball service time.
It was the second-highest figure ever given to a player in year one of arbitration, behind only Kris Bryant of the Chicago Cubs.
The Red Sox and Betts couldn't agree on a contract the previous two offseasons, and in 2017, the Red Sox wound up renewing the right fielder's contract for just $950,000.
