Puerto Rican starter José Berríos reached a one-year, $ 5.6 million deal with the Minnesota Twins – plus a $ 500,000 signing bonus – thus avoiding an arbitration hearing. According to mlb.com, the Twins made a pact with the 26-year-old from Bayamon since last December 2. In 2020, Berríos activated the arbitration process in his first year of eligibility, requesting a payment of $ 4.4 million. Three arbitrators from the federal Department of Labor ruled in favor of the Twins, who ended up paying the Puerto Rican $ 4,025,000.
Berríos will be a free agent at the end of the 2022 season and the media have pointed out the possibility that Minnesota will offer an extension to the two-time All-Star Player. He is coming off 5-4 with a 4.00 ERA in 12 starts during the short 2020 season.
