O's prevail in arbitration case vs. De Aza
SARASOTA, Fla. -- The Orioles won their arbitration hearing on Friday against outfielder Alejandro De Aza, which means he will make $5 million in 2015. De Aza's side had requested $5.65 million, but he still gets a good raise from the $4.25 million he made last year.
De Aza was the Orioles only arbitration case that went to a hearing and continues the organization's recent success in those cases.
Acquired in an August trade from the White Sox, De Aza flourished with Baltimore and is expected to get fairly consistent playing time in the corner outfield spots this winter.
