Royals Win Arbitration Hearing Against Brandon Maurer

The Royals have won their arbitration hearing against right-hander Brandon Maurer, tweets FanRag’s Jon Heyman. He’ll earn a $ 2.95MM salary as opposed to the $ 3.5MM sought by Maurer and his agents at Frye McCann Sports (link to MLBTR’s Arbitration Tracker). Maurer still takes home a raise of $ 1.05MM in his second trip through the arbitration process, and he can be controlled through 2019 before reaching free agency.

More to come.
