The Tampa Bay Devil Rays won the first arbitration decision of the year Saturday – against backup catcher Josh Paul. Paul sought a raise from $475,000 to $940,000 at Friday’s hearing. The Devil Rays countered with $625,000. Only one figure may be chosen, and the three arbitrators decided on the club’s offer. Paul is best known for a play during the 2005 playoffs while with the Angels. Umpire Doug Eddings ruled Paul did not glove Kelvim Escobar’s pitch before it hit the ground, allowing A.J. Pierzynski to reach base as the Chicago White Sox rallied in the ninthinning of Game 2.. center_img Jeter weighs in on Williams’ plight: New York Yankees captain Derek Jeter said it would be “unfortunate” if longtime outfielder Bernie Williams doesn’t return to the team. “You never like to see that aspect, you know with Bernie, what he’s meant to the organization,” Jeter said Saturday in Tampa, Fla., at a baseball clinic. “I’m not up to date or up to par with all the negotiations and things like that. I would love to see Bernie come back.” Williams told reporters Friday night before playing guitar at a benefit concert that he plans to decline the Yankees’ offer to attend spring training on a minor-league contract. New York general manager Brian Cashman said there was no room for the 38-year-old Williams on the roster. “We love and respect Bernie, but with the dynamic of our roster, there’s not a spot,” Cashman told The NewYork Times. “We had a lot of conversations with him. I understand that he doesn’t want to accept a minor-league deal.” last_img read more
