Blue Jays infielder Danny Valencia had filed for $1.675 million in arbitration. The Jays team filed for $1.25 million. They just had their hearing and Valencia won, the team has announced. It was Toronto’s first actual arbitration case in 18 years. Maybe they were rusty.
Valencia was traded from the Royals to the Jays last season. Overall he hit .258/.296/.371 in 284 plate appearances.
