Call it a split decision. Though the Marlins beat catcher J.T. Realmuto in salary arbitration Friday, they lost to first baseman Justin Bour. Arbitrators ruled in favor of Bour, awarding the slugger a $3.4 million salary for 2018. The Marlins argued he deserved to receive $3 million. Realmuto, meanwhile, came out on the losing end of his case when the three-member panel of independent arbitrators sided with the Marlins. Realmuto, who was asking for $3.5 million, will end up making $2.9 million instead. The salary arbitration process involves only players with between three and six years of Major League experience. Either way, both players are getting raises.
