This is because the amount of money presented by the team has increased by more than XNUMX million yen.[5].

    Major league baseball

    Major league baseball(MLB) has been arranging annual salary since 1973.Salary Arbitration) The system has started.At that time, it was still FA (Free agent) There is no system, players are bound by the hold system and do not have the right to transfer the team voluntarily[6], Started with the purpose of relieving the treatment of players who had been placed at a disadvantage in contract negotiations[7].

    Under MLB's annual salary mediation system, athletes who have applied for mediation by the specified date (AgentIf the) side and the team side do not reach a contract agreement after the current year by the specified deadline in January, a public hearing will be held in February after presenting the desired annual salary of both parties in advance.公聴会では、出席した球団側(球団フロント、MLB機構担当など)および選手側(選手、代理人、選手会担当者など)の主張を踏まえ、MLB機構と選手会が合意のうえで選定した中立的な複数の裁定人によって採決が下されるAt the hearing, the neutrality selected by the MLB Organization and the Players Association based on the claims of the teams (team front, MLB organization staff, etc.) and players (players, agents, player association staff, etc.) who attended. Voted by multiple arbitrators[8]..The vote will be in the form of fully adopting the claims of either the team side or the player side.また契約年数は必ず単年となるAlso, the contract period is always a single year.[9].

    Application conditions

    MLB during the regular seasonActive roaster(Injured listNumber of days registered in various suspension list registration period (including the period during registration)British: Major League Service time , Less thanMLS) Reached 3.000 (3 years in total) to obtain the annual salary arbitration right[10][11].

    As an exception, among all athletes with MLS of 2.000 or more and less than 3.000 and active roaster registration days of 86 days or more in the previous season, athletes with MLS lengths in the top 22% also obtain annual salary arbitration rights. ..This exception is called "Super 2"[9].

    Once the mediation right is obtained, both the player side and the team side can apply for mediation for the player's contract annual salary every season off.If the team does not present the contracted annual salary for the next season or later by the deadline (generally around the beginning of December every year) to the players who have the right to mediate, the players will be asked.Non-tender FA (British: Non-tender FA) ”.Also, the players whose MLS reached 6.000FA rightAfter that, the annual salary arbitration right is lost.

    The actual situation

    In many years, more than 150 athletes apply for annual salary arbitration.However, even if you apply, the number of cases that are actually brought to the hearing is about 10 people a year, and before that, the team side and the player side conclude at the middle point of the claim, and a single-year or multi-year contract In most cases.This is because, as mentioned above, the hearing cannot take a compromise between the two claims.[12], And also to avoid barren hostility at hearings[8].

    For players under 3 years of MLS who do not yet have the annual salary arbitration right, the team with the holding right can decide the contract annual salary virtually unilaterally as before the introduction of the system.[13][6], No matter how big the player was, it was customary to renew the contract with an amount close to the MLB minimum guaranteed annual salary.[14].2022As a relief, a "Pre-arbitration bonus pool" system has been introduced that distributes the prescribed amount (total of $ 2022 million in 5000) to the top 100 players who do not have the right to arbitrate.[15].

    Since the annual salary of players with mediation rights tends to rise year by year regardless of their performance, the team may abandon the holding rights as non-tenders as mentioned above and avoid mediation by treating players who are not worth the cost as non-tenders. There are many[16].

    Long time agoFree agentCompensation for a player was limited to the case where the player applied for annual salary arbitration, but as a result of the player side reusing the annual salary arbitration and winning a contract for a large annual salary, the team side spends unexpectedly. There was a case that was troubled by[7].2012After offQualifying offerHas been introduced, and it is no longer necessary to apply for annual salary arbitration for FA compensation.
