Ross wins arbitration case
After enjoying his best MLB season, Cody Ross was in line for a hefty pay raise.
On Tuesday, the Marlins outfielder found out exactly how much.
At an arbitration hearing in St. Petersburg, Fla., a panel ruled in favor of Ross. Their decision means Ross will make $4.45 million in 2010, instead of the $4.2 million the Marlins offered.
Ross will receive a $2.225 million raise from a year ago, or double what he earned in 2009, when he made $2.225 million.
Ross and the Marlins had their hearing on Monday. It is common for the decision to be made a day later.
