Hart wins arbitration with Brewers; Outfielder awarded raise to $4.8 million

Posted:

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- Outfielder Corey Hart has beaten the Brewers in Milwaukee's first salary arbitration hearing in 12 years.

Hart was awarded a raise from $3.25 million to $4.8 million by a panel of arbitrators on Friday instead of the Brewers' offer of $4.15 million.

In the first case in the major leagues to go to a hearing this year, arbitrators Elizabeth Neumeier, John Sands and Sylvia Skratek issued their decision one day after hearing arguments. Ten additional players are scheduled for hearings through next week.

Hart hit .260 with 12 homers and 48 RBIs last season.
