Do you love baseball arbitration? Who are we kidding, of course you do. Stay up to date with players and their payouts with our 2019 MLB Arbitration Tracker.

You will never be able to look at these players again without seeing them as Pokémon.

  • Nolan Arenado and the Rockies made history as they agreed on a one year, $26 million contract to avoid arbitration. That $26 million is a most given to an arbitration eligible player and frankly, Arenado deserves it.
  • Keep your finger on the pulse of the free agent circus and stay up to date with all the Bryce Harper news your little here can handle right here. Who will add the slugger to their lineup come the 2019 season?
  • The Astros bolstered the back-end of their rotation when they signed Wade Miley to a one year deal. Miley was one of the bigger surprises performance-wise last season and should help the Astros (at least a bit) in offsetting the losses of Charlie Morton and (very likely) Dallas Keuchel.
  • The Padres have made a bit of a surprise entrance to the top of the free agent market as they are showing interest in some of the top names on the free agent market including Bryce Harper and Manny Machado. San Diego may not look the part of a contender right now, but they have one of the league’s best farm systems and could become good in a hurry.
