Players Avoiding Arbitration: Josh Outman

We'll keep track of any players to avoid arbitration this evening right here:

  • The Indians have avoided arbitration with southpaw reliever Josh Outman, the club announced via Twitter. Outman was recently acquired from the Rockies in exchange for outfielder Drew Stubbs. Outman was projected by MLBTR's Matt Swartz to earn a $1.4MM paycheck, and the Associated Press reports (via ESPN) that he will in fact make $1.25MM. Outman becomes the first player to avoid arbitration who technically filed for it today.
  • You can keep tabs on all arbitration situations — including those already resolved and those still outstanding — through MLBTR's Arbitration Tracker.

    They gave up Stubbs for an average reliever? Not sure I agree with that trade.

      Considering Stubbs has posted a career OPS+ of 87, I’d say he’s below-average on the whole himself.

      Stubbs is pretty average

    Outman. What a name for a pitcher.

      I was just thinking the same thing. How can you not want this guy to do well with a name like that?
