After the Dodgers signed Walker Buehler to a 2-year deal this week, they had just one more pending arbitration case to handle. That was settled today with Austin Barnes before the two sides went to an arbitration hearing.
The Dodgers and Barnes agreed to a two-year deal worth $4.3 million today per Ken Rosenthal. The settlement avoids arbitration and Los Angeles no longer has any pending case to resolve. The cub initially had offered $1.5 million while Barnes brought a $2 million figure for arbitration.
The signing signals a start to the season for the Dodgers, who did not neet to go to actual hearings with any players. Walker Buehler was another player they were in dispute with over figures until this past week. They gave Buehler a 2-year deal worth $8 million, giving the team a huge discount and locking down Buehler’s salary.
