Hunter Pence Wins Arbitration

Outfielder Hunter Pence has won his arbitration case with the Astros for $6.9MM, according to Jon Heyman of Sports Illustrated (Twitter links).  The 27-year-old is represented by the Beverly Hills Sports Council.

Houston was offering the 2009 All-Star $5.15MM for this season but came away paying a bit more.  With Pence now taken care of, the Astros have no more arbitration cases to tackle for 2011, according to the MLBTR Arb Tracker.

This marks a big win for BHSC, particularly since this W comes against arbitration guru Tal Smith.  The agency holds a 4-4 record in the last decade of arb cases.
