The Braves won their arbitration case over third baseman Austin Riley, reports Mark Feinsand of He’ll earn the team’s $3.95M filing figure in 2022; Riley’s camp sought a $4.2M salary.

Riley reached arbitration for the first time over the offseason as a Super Two player. He’ll be eligible three more times before first qualifying for free agency after the 2025 campaign. Arbitration salaries have a compounding effect based off previous years’ numbers, so the result means he’ll be working from a slightly lower baseline in future years than he would’ve had he won the hearing.
