Two of the remaining Braves arbitration cases have been resolved. As first reported by The Associated Press, Dansby Swanson He won his case and will receive a salary of $10 million. Adam DuvalIn the meantime, he will get $9.275 million after losing his case. Both players will access free agency after this season, as this was their last trip through the arb process for each other.
Swanson and the Braves had an $800,000 feud, with the team making $9.2 million. This came on the heels of a .248/.311/.449 showing last year, in which Shortstop started 158 regular season games. Swanson has won 27 home races and led in 88 runners, and will earn a $4 million bonus on this season’s $6 million salary despite hitting average walkers and base marks.
Meanwhile, Duvall smashed 38 players in 146 games spread between the Marlins and Braves. He hit only 0.28 with a 0.281 OBP, but the 33-year-old tied for fourth in Major League Baseball with 113 hits. to give up his end of a $7 million mutual option for the 2022 campaign. That was an easy call, as Braves offered him an arbitration contract, and he’d make a little more money than the option price even after losing at the hearing. Duvall’s camp was seeking a salary of $10.125 million, so he would get $1 million toward his goal.
Of course, the differences in the 2022 Swanson and Duval campaigns are staggering. The former is arguably career best, carrying a .279/ .348/ .428 slash and positioning itself well for a lucrative multi-year contract next winter. Duvall, on the other hand, faltered at his personal worst of .199/.260/.309 and has only hit three people in his 54 games.
Players’ performance this year is not supposed to play any role in the judges’ decisions. Sessions usually take place in the off-season, but the shutdown has caused precarious issues to persist in the season. However, cases submitted will be determined based on players’ track records prior to 2022, their platform salaries, and the performance of past players in their service buckets.
Swanson and Duvall were two of five Atlanta players who did not reconcile with the team before going to a hearing. Braves win cases over both third baseman Austin Riley and loyal luke jackson earlier this year. beginning Max Fried A hearing is still pending, with a modest gap between the two sides’ $6.85 million and $6.6 million deposits.
