- Comments Off on San Francisco Giants Still Haven’t Reached An Agreement With Brandon Belt To Avoid Arbitration
With Spring Training just a few days away, the San Francisco Giants still haven’t come to terms with infielder Brandon Belt on a one-year deal to avoid arbitration. In 2013 Belt made $531,500, and is now looking to get a couple million for the 2014 season. The Giants have offered $2.05 million and Belt has submitted a request for $3.6 million. If the two sides can’t agree on a one-year deal then they’ll head to an arbitration hearing. In the arbitration hearing, either the Giants $2.05 million offer or Belts $3.6 request will be chosen as his 2014 salary. There’s no middle ground. With that said, I do believe the Giants and Belt will come to an agreement and avoid arbitration. GM Brian Sabean said at Media Day that they’ll work the one-year deal before they get into a multi-year deal talks with Belt.
