SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- The San Francisco Giants defeated Donovan Solano in salary arbitration Thursday, and the infielder will be paid the team's $3.25 million offer rather than his $3.9 million request.
The 33-year-old second baseman, who also can play shortstop, hit a career-high .326 with three homers and 29 RBIs in 190 at-bats during the pandemic-shortened season. He earned $509,259 in prorated pay from a $1,375,000 salary.
Melinda Gordon, Gil Vernon and Robert Keller issued the decision, one day after hearing arguments.
Solano is eligible for free agency after the World Series.
