Andruw Jones

Although recently acquired Alfonso Soriano (.268, 36, 104) of the Nationals loses his salary arbitration case, the former Texas Rangers infielder sets a record for the highest salary ever awarded by the process on February 10, 2006.

The All-Star second baseman, who is being asked to play the outfield in Washington, will receive $10 million (he asked for $12 million), surpassing the $8.2 million awarded to Andruw Jones in his successful 2001 arbitration hearing with the Braves.
