ATL Ace, who hoped for ‘18.7 billion’, lost salary adjustment… I couldn’t laugh for 2 years in a row

 Atlanta Braves’ ‘Ace’ Max Fried, who lifted the 2021 World Series (WS) championship trophy, lost in a salary adjustment hearing.

Local media outlets such as Mark Finesand of ‘ESPN’ and ‘’ reported on the 5th (Korean time), “Max Fried lost to the Atlanta Braves in salary adjustment.”

Fried was selected as the 7th overall pick in the 1st round of the 2012 rookie draft by the San Diego Padres, and was a ‘top prospect’ who stepped on the professional stage. In his first year of debut, Fried 1-1 with an ERA of 3.81 in 9 games (4 starts) and 14 games (5 starts) the following year with an ERA of 2.94 with an ERA of 1-4 and began to stand out.

Fried’s skills have been in full bloom since the 2019 season. Fried played an active role with an average ERA of 4.02 with 17 wins and 6 losses in 33 games (30 starts) and became a full-fledged ace. And in 11 games in 2020, when the shortened season was held, he recorded 7 wins and an undefeated average ERA of 2.25, continuing his winning streak.

In the 2021 season, Fried also played an active role with an average ERA of 3.04 with 14 wins and 7 losses in 28 games (165⅔ innings). Fried, who had excellent results for three consecutive years, hoped for an annual salary of $6.85 million (about 8.5 billion won) after the 2021 season. However, the club offered Freed 6.6 million dollars (approximately 8.2 billion won). In the end, the two sides could not find an agreement, and went to a salary adjustment hearing. And the salary adjustment committee sided with Fried.

After winning the salary adjustment hearing, Fried’s performance continued. Last year, Fried appeared in 30 games (185⅓ innings) and recorded 14 wins and 7 losses. His ERA of 2.48 ranked third overall among National League pitchers, and he was selected as the first National League All-Star for the first time in his career.

Fried demanded $15 million (approximately 18.7 billion won) from the club after the season. However, Atlanta claimed 13.5 million dollars (approximately 16.8 billion won), and Fried decided to listen to the opinion of the annual salary adjustment committee for the second consecutive year, as did Dansby Swanson (Chicago Cubs). But this time, Swanson didn’t laugh. The salary adjustment committee sided with Atlanta this time.

‘ESPN’ added, “Despite the defeat, Freed was the highest amount determined by the Salary Arbitration Committee,” adding, “It matched the $13.5 million received by Gerrit Cole (currently the New York Yankees) in 2019.”

Meanwhile, Fried made his big league debut in Atlanta in 2017 and participated in 125 games (108 starts) in 6 seasons, recording a 54-25 loss with an average ERA of 3.09 메이저사이트, winning the Gold Glove for three consecutive years, and lifting the 2021 World Series championship trophy. raised
