Rockies' Nolan Arenado turned down record $24 million in arbitration, report says


Nolan Arenado wants a massive deal in arbitration this year.

The four-time All-Star and six-time Gold Glove winner reportedly turned down $24 million in arbitration Friday.

According to the Athletic, Arenado, 27, wanted a record-breaking $30 million for the 2019 season. The $24 million would have been a record as well.

The two parties will likely meet in the middle somewhere when they meet with an arbitrator, so either way, Arenando will make a record amount of money this year.

Josh Donaldson signed a $23 million deal in arbitration with the Blue Jays in 2018.

Mookie Betts signed for $20 million in arbitration Friday, which is the most ever for a player in his second arbitration year.

Arenado will be a free agent after the 2019 season. He is a career .291 hitter with 186 home runs and 616 RBIs in six MLB years.
