Lopez and Outman Avoid Arbitration

In a post season that has been nothing short of depressing in the lack of action by the team, any little news becomes big news.  Today’s little news is that arbitration-eligible players Josh Outman and Wilton Lopez have both agreed to a one-year contract.

The team has decided not to offer long-term contracts to arbitration-eligible players, so Fowler won’t be getting a big payday this off-season, but will most likely get something substantial in his second year of arbitration.

Lopez, really the only “big” pickup in the off-season, will make $1.7625 million, with Outman receiving $675,000.

Chacin, Colvin, Herrera and Fowler all remain unsigned as of now.  They all have until Friday to reach an agreement before arbitration begins.
