The Miami Marlins agreed on an arbitration salary with SP Pablo Lopez. What about the rest of the team? Who else got a raise via arbitration? Who is potentially headed for a hearing? How much are The Fish spending on players? Let's take a look at everyone who is owed a salray through arbitration and how the process is currently looking right now? Are you ready to take a big look at the 2023 Miami Marlins arbitration class?
The Miami Marlins have an interesting 2023 arbitration class.
Let's start with SP Pablo Lopez, who receives $5.45 million in 2023 after a 3.0 WAR season in 2022. He finally pitched a decent amount (180.0 innings) and delivered a 3.75 ERA/3.71 FIP with 8.7 K/9 and 2.7 BB/9 in the process. C Jacob Stallings was disappointing in 2022, but there is some hope. He will receive a $3.35 million salary in 2023.
What about All-Star 1B Garrett Cooper? Cooper is getting $4.2 million in 2023 after that aforementioned All-Star nod in 2022 and a .261/.337/.415 batting line that season. Next up we have likely 2023 SS Joey Wendle. Wendle was disappointing in 2022, batting .259/.297/.360 as a part-time player in 101 games and 357 AB, but had a surprisingly solid 2.4 WAR. He will receive a $6 million salary in 2023. That definitely makes his potential starting job make more sense to justify that salary.
CP Dylan Floro is underrated despite his 2.81 ERA/2,81 FIP in 2021 and 3.02 ERA/3.13 FIP in 2022. He will receive a reasonable $3.9 million in 2023. Another relief pitcher Tanner Scott was up and down in 2022. He finished the season with a 4.31 ERA/3.67 FIP and will earn $2.825 million in 2023. Utility player Jon Berti, had a 2.5 WAR season in 2022. He stole a Major League leading 41 bases while batting .240/.324/.338 and will receive an unknown salary, as the team and Berti are headed for a potential hearing. The same will happen with newly acquired reliever J.T. Chargois. Another such player is SP Jesus Luzardo and his 2.0 WAR with a 3.32 ERA/3.12 FIP in 2022.
