A.J. Preller continues his streak of avoiding arbitration hearings as the general manager of the San Diego Padres. Today, he and the organization avoided arbitration with the following seven players:

  • Josh Hader: $14.1 million
  • Juan Soto: $23 million
  • Tim Hill: $1.85 million
  • Austin Nola: $2.35 million
  • Trent Grisham: $3.175 million
  • Adrian Morejon: $800,000
  • Jake Cronenworth: $4.225 million

San Diego also avoided arbitration with Jose Castillo back in November ($730,000). The Padres luxury tax payroll is now estimated to be sitting at $269.6 million, according to FanGraphs.

The Nelson Cruz signing has not yet been officially announced by the club.
