Cleveland hasn’t had to go to arbitration with their players very often in the last few decades. Since 1991, they had only went to hearings with Josh Tomlin and Vinnie Pestano in 2014 (the team won both). Now, in 2018, Bauer has emerged victorious, earning $6.525 million as opposed to the $5.3 million that was originally offered by the team.
