Reliever Duaner Sanchez has received a remarkable amount of money from the Mets today. According to the New York Post, he went from earning $950,000 last year to $1,687,500 this year.
All this to avoid arbitration hearings.
Personally, I do not think he earned this money. Granted, he was out for a year recovering from surgeries, but when he did come back, he did not do much. Down the stretch he had an 8.64 ERA. Those are not great numbers.
Let’s hope he earns it this year.
