Teams improved to 4-0 in salary arbitration this year when the Colorado Rockies defeated catcher Tony Wolters, who will earn $1.9 million rather than his request for $2,475,000. The 27-year-old made $960,000 last year, when he hit .262 with one homer and 42 RBIs in 411 plate appearances. Players who previously lost this year were Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Joc Pederson, Minnesota pitcher José Berríos and Atlanta reliever Shane Greene. Dodgers reliever Pedro Báez asked an arbitration panel for a raise to $4 million on Tuesday and Los Angeles argued he should be paid $3.5 million.
