Ji-man Choi (Pittsburgh Pirates)’s former colleague Diego Castillo (Seattle Mariners) lost in a salary adjustment hearing.
“MLB.com’s Mark Finesand said on the 2nd (Korean time), “Diego Castillo has lost his salary adjustment lawsuit against the Seattle Mariners.”
Castillo made his debut at the Tampa Bay Rays in 2018 and wore the Seattle Mariners’ uniform through a trade during the 2021 season. Castillo went 4-2, 10 holds, and had a 3.18 ERA in 43 games (11 starts) in his debut season, earning a spot on the 40-man roster in the big leagues. 메이저사이트
The following year, Castillo also played an active role with 5 wins, 8 losses, 17 holds, 8 saves, and an ERA of 3.41 in 65 games (6 starts). It has perfectly established itself as Tampa Bay’s winning group.
Castillo changed his uniform during the 2021 season, but in 61 games he recorded 5 wins, 5 losses, 11 holds, 16 saves, and an average ERA of 2.78. Castillo, who received an annual salary of 2.15 million dollars (about 2.6 billion won) last year, asked for 3.225 million dollars (about 3.9 billion won), and Seattle offered 2.95 million dollars (about 3.6 billion won).
Seattle and Castillo were unable to reach an agreement until the deadline for salary adjustment, and they ended up going to a hearing. But it was Seattle that smiled. As the Salary Adjustment Committee sided with Seattle, Castillo’s salary for the 2023 season was finalized at $2.95 million, an increase of $800,000 (about 1 billion won) from last year.
Meanwhile, Castillo appeared in 250 major league games (17 starts) and recorded 24 wins, 18 losses, 52 holds, 35 saves, and an ERA of 3.64.
