Salary Arbitration

MLBThe Milwaukee Brewers today signed second baseman Rickie Weeks to a four-year contract through the 2014 season with an option for 2015 that is reportedly worth $38.5 million. The announcement was made by Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Melvin.

“We are thrilled that Rickie has chosen to remain a Brewer,” said Melvin. “He has become one of the best leadoff hitters in the game today; possessing speed, plate discipline and power. His aggressive style sets the tone for our offense. Rickie is also one of the toughest players to play the game and has always played at a high-intensity level.”

Weeks, 28, is coming off his best Major League season. He batted .269 with 29 HR, 83 RBI and 11 stolen bases in 160 games in 2010. As one of the top leadoff hitters and second basemen in the game last season, Weeks led the National League in hit by pitches (25), at-bats (651) and plate appearances (754) and ranked among the leaders in runs (2nd, 112), total bases (T6th, 302), hits (8th, 175) and multi-hit games (T8th, 50).

Weeks broke the franchise record with his 754 plate appearances last season, a mark which was previously held by Hall of Famer Paul Molitor (752 in 1991), and tied the franchise record with his 25 hit by pitches. He belted a franchise-record eight leadoff homers and produced the most home runs, RBI and runs ever by a Brewers second baseman in a single season.

Selected by Milwaukee in the first round (second overall) of the 2003 First-Year Player Draft, Weeks owns a career batting average of .253 with 89 HR, 265 RBI and 91 stolen bases in 642 games.

In other salary arbitration news...

The Minnesota Twins announced today that they have agreed to terms with outfielder Delmon Young on a one-year, $5.375 million contract, avoiding arbitration.

Young, 25, batted .298 (170-for-570) with 46 doubles, one triple, 21 home runs and 112 rbi in 153 games with the Twins last season. He led the club in hits, doubles and rbi, was tied for second in games and home runs, and was third in at-bats. Young’s 46 doubles were tied for the second-highest single-season total in Twins history.

And then there were two...

There are now just two players left in salary arbitration -- Hunter Pence of the Astros, and Jose Bautista of the Blue Jays. Bautista and the Jays postponded their hearing on Monday saying they were close to an agreement. The Astros intend on going to hearing with Pence. All hearings end no later than this coming Friday, the 18th
