Vladimir Guerrero Jr. wins record $19.9 million in salary arbitration against Toronto Blue Jays

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Vladimir Guerrero Jr. won a record $19.9 million in salary arbitration on Wednesday when a three-person panel picked his request rather than the Toronto Blue Jays' $18.05 million offer.

Scott Buchheit, Walt De Treux and Jeanne Charles made the decision a day after listening to arguments. Players have a 6-2 lead in hearings this year with 10 cases pending.

Guerrero topped the previous high awarded from a hearing - the $14 million Seattle outfielder Teoscar Hernandez received after he lost.

A three-time All-Star, Guerrero hit .264 with 26 homers and 94 RBIs last year, when he had a $14.5 million salary. He is eligible for free agency after the 2025 season.
