The Braves won their arbitration case against starting pitcher Mike Foltynewicz on Saturday, resulting in a difference in only $100,000 less than they would’ve paid if he’d won. He’ll make $2.2 million in 2018, a person close to the situation said. Making the outcome even less significant was this: Foltynewicz became a father earlier Saturday when his wife Brittany gave birth to their son, Michael Jett Foltynewicz. He weighed 8 pounds, 10 ounces, Foltynewicz announced in on his Instagram account, posting a picture of the baby. When the Braves and Foltynewicz swapped salary arbitration figures Jan. 12, the Braves filed at $2.3 million and Foltynewicz at $2.2 million, the smallest difference in any of the major league arbitration cases this year. Since the Braves, like a majority of teams, have a “file-and-trial” policy, it meant there would be no negotiating after the sides filed, even though they presumably could have met halfway and paid $2.25 million. The file-and-trial policy means once the sides swap salary-arbitration figures, the Braves will not negotiate before the arbitration hearing unless it’s for a multi-year deal. The Braves have no more arbitration cases, and pitchers and catchers report to spring training Tuesday and have their first workout Wednesday.
