Blade Treinen has won his arbitration case at $6.4 million, thehad filed at $5.6 million. Arbitration cases usually are not settled beforehand if the numbers the team and player come to are sparse. In this situation, they were $800K apart. After the breakout season Treinen had, it is no wonder that he didn’t back down. Treinen pitched 80 and a third innings, with a 1.82 FIP but most impressively a 0.78 ERA. David Adler had one of the more shocking tweets today.
80+ IP and an ERA under 1:
Blake Treinen, 2018
Ferdie Schupp, 1916
Dutch Leonard, 1914
Tim Keefe, 1880
Treinen turned his 0.78 ERA into $6.4 million for 2019. Just a bit more than the crisp $1,500 Keefe made with the Troy Trojans in 1881, per the Spalding Guide.
