Paul Sullivan of the Chicago Tribune reports that shortstop Ryan Theriot will earn $2.6 million this season after losing his arbitration hearing with the Cubs. He requested $3.4 million when arbitration figures were exchanged last month.
Theriot, 31, batted .284/.343/.369 with seven home runs, 54 RBI, 21 stolen bases and 81 runs scored last season. Though he is more than four years older, Theriot’s numbers were quite comparable to fellow shortstop Stephen Drew last season, who avoided arbitration by agreeing to a $3.4 million contact with the Diamondbacks in January. Arbitration-eligible for the first time this winter, Theriot still receives a sizable raise from the $500,000 salary he made in 2009.
