Bo Bichette does not like salary arbitration


By signing a three-year contract with the Toronto Blue Jays, shortstop Bo Bichette has ensured that he never has to resort to the salary arbitration process, and this, at his great happiness. 

The 24-year-old sensation recently secured a new deal worth a total of $33.6 million. He has thus ensured that he will directly benefit from his complete autonomy when this pact ends.

“Officiating is an incredibly flawed process, which is not very good for our sport, said Bichette. , whose remarks were reported by the Sportsnet network. There is no reason to pit owners and managers against players.”

Salary arbitration was introduced in major league baseball in the 1970s. If a player goes to a session arbitration, he and his club exchange the desired salaries and plead before an independent panel. The latter then chooses a winner and awards a salary. During this type of session, teams can talk down their own players, which can sometimes lead to tension.

“I just don't think it's good for relationships,” Bichette said. . Players and owners, we should strive for a good relationship between boss and employee.”
