Stanton, Cishek, Dunn avoid arbitration

MIAMI — Negotations went down to the deadline, and Marlins reached agreements on deals with Giancarlo Stanton and reliever Mike Dunn.

Stanton will make $6.5 million. Cishek is set to earn $3.8 million, and Dunn will receive $1.4 million.

By agreeing, all three avoid going through an arbitration hearing.

The MLB salary arbitration exchange deadline was Friday at 1 p.m. ET.

Per team policy, if the Marlins had not reached deals by the deadline, each player’s salary would have been decided at a hearing in February.
