Hunter was terrible last season, throwing 134 innings with a 5.45 ERA and being demoted to the minors, but he still gets a raise from $500,000 to $1.82 million thanks to being arbitration eligible for the first time at age 25.
Hunter parlayed some good luck and even better run support into a 13-4 record and 3.68 ERA for the Rangers in 2010, but since then he’s posted a 5.15 ERA in 218 innings while serving up 44 homers.
