According to multiple reports, Mike Dunn and the Miami Marlins have agreed to a new one year deal for 1.4 million dollars. The agreement prevents an arbitration hearing to decide his salary in the upcoming year.
Editor’s note: Since the publishing of this article, it has been brought to our attention that the Twitter account for Mike Dunn is not his actual Twitter account. Due to this, we have redacted his Twitter comment.
Dunn isn’t the only one who has avoided arbitration by signing a contract for 2014.
As expected, Cishek was happy to get a deal, and ready to get back to work.
This is great news for the Marlins. They had three players that were heading to arbitration, but they were able to avoid them with these contracts. I think all of the deals were fair, and the fact that they were able to get them done reflects positively on the front office of the Marlins.
