Salary Arbitration

The Miami Herald's Marlins beat writer Clark Spencer tweets that Florida agreed on a one-year $2 million deal to avoid arbitration with potential closer Leo Nunez. Nunez made $412,500 in 2009. This is his first year of arbitration eligibility.

Nunez appeared in 75 games for the Marlins. He assumed the closer role at midseason after which he saved 22 games for Florida. For the season he posted a 4-6 record to go with a 4.06 ERA

Nunez' signing reduces the number of players whose cases are pending to 102. The Marlins still have two arbitration eligible players with whom they will exchange figures today. They'll have until hearings begin to sign Cody Ross and Jorge Cantu. Please visit the salary arbitration page for more information.
