Yolmer Sanchez beats White Sox in salary arbitration

PHOENIX (AP) Infielder Yolmer Sanchez beat the Chicago White Sox in salary arbitration and will get a raise from $546,000 to $2.35 million rather than the team’s $2.1 million offer.

Sanchez set career bests last year with a .267 average, 12 homers and 59 RBIs and .319 on-base percentage. He appeared in 78 games at second, 52 at third, four and shortstop and one in right field.

Arbitrators Robert Herzog, Sylvia Skratek and Walt De Treux made the decision Wednesday, a day after hearing arguments.

Players have a 6-3 advantage over teams in decisions this year.
