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.
