Nolan Arenado Reportedly Asked Rockies for Record $30 Million in Arbitration

Colorado Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado is going to get paid and will reportedly set a record in the process.

According to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic, Arenado asked the Rockies for $30 million in arbitration. While the Rockies countered at $24 million, Rosenthal noted the four-time All-Star would set the record for arbitration salary even if the two sides settled on the Rockies' number.

Bob Nightengale of USA Today confirmed the report, calling Arenado "the biggest prize in next year’s free agent market."
