Cody Bellinger and Aaron Judge are both getting 1000% raises for next year

Friday marked another key date on the Major League Baseball offseason calendar. It’s the final day in which players and teams can exchange figures in their on-going arbitration negotiations.

It’s not a hard deadline for an agreement to be reached, but for a lot of players it means the first truly big payday of their baseball careers. Among those players this year are sluggers Cody Bellinger of the Los Angeles Dodgers and Aaron Judge of the New York Yankees.

The respective 2017 Rookie of the Year winners were arbitration eligible for the first time this winter, and both ended up receiving a raise of over 1000% from their 2019 salaries.

In Bellinger’s case, he agreed to a $11.5 million salary, which breaks the record for a first-time eligible player.

For those curious about how the arbitration process is working this off-season…..

1000% raises and still being paid about 1/3 of what they're worth. It's good to be an MLB owner.
