Who won arbitration in 2019— players or owners? - Beyond the Box Score

Takeaways

These settlements have long-term consequences. Each player’s salary is a major determining factor in next year’s arbitration. It’s impossible to tell exactly, but losing $100,000 as a Super Two probably costs a player more than $1 million over the entirety of their arbitration years.

Once again, the players need to do a better job. This is at least the second year in a row in which they’ve failed to meet projections. Given that the players who went through with arbitration did so much better, more of them should play hardball in negotiations. If the team isn’t willing to meet demands, let the arbiter decide. It seems to work out better in the end.
