Good Morning everyone!
First off all, I’d like to say thank you for all of the wonderful feedback I received from my first post, or on Twitter! The entire MLB community truly is the sweetest! I was even mentioned on this Weekends “Weekend Warriors“.
This morning, we are going to be discussing everything Arbitration, that relates to the BlueJays, of course!
As many of you have probably been aware, many of the BlueJays pitchers filed for Arbitration. With the deadline being yesterday, there was a lot of pressure for the BlueJays organization to see what they would be doing with those players.
These BlueJays have agreed to terms and are no longer on Arbitration.
Drew Storen, Brett Cecil, Michael Saunders, Drew Hutchison, Aaron Loup and Steve Delabar. Storen ($8.375 million), Cecil ($3.8 million), Hutchison ($2.2 million), Loup ($1.05 million), Saunders ($2.9 million) and Delabar ($835,000) all obtained raises from their 2015 salaries.
Although, one key player is missing from this list.
The Blue Jays offered Donaldson $11.35 million, while he asked for $11.8 million, as reported by Sportsnet. This will be the second consecutive season a possible arbitration hearing may occur for Donaldson.
Are you surprised by any of the above information? Let me know in the comments below, or tweet me @aalyssacohen.
Side Note – I haven’t been able to find many BlueJays calls, so I’m going to have to think of something else! For now…
Catch you in the Rogers Centre!
