The Rays settled with some of the arbitration eligible players. ($) Tyler Glasnow will earn $4 million; Yonny Chirinos, who is unlikely to have much of in impact as he recovers from Tommy John surgery, will earn $1.175. Joey Wendle settled for $2.25 million and Manuel Margot for $3.4 million.
They will go to arbitration with Ji-Man Choi (team - $1.85M, player - $2.45M) and Ryan Yarbrough (team - $2.3M, player - $3.1M). Yarbrough’s case will be interesting. DRB’s Darby Robinson wrote about this back when the baseball world was lamenting the Rays use of the opener as a way to tamp down pitcher salaries in arbitration, where counting stats like starts are valued, and Jared Ward wrote about it more recently.
