For the second time in as many years, Atlanta Braves ace Max Fried went to an arbitration hearing with the franchise he's called home for the last six years. The staff ace in on the heels of yet another strong campaign, earning an All-Star appearance, Gold Glove and second-place finish in the NL Cy Young award voting.

Fried learned of a final decision on his 2023 salary, as reported on Saturday.

The Braves won this arbitration hearing against their stud rotation arm. Fried filed for $15 million but the franchise won this case, meaning he'll get paid $13.5 million for the upcoming season.

Last year, Fried actually won his arbitration case and took home $6.85 million instead of the $6.6 the Braves filed for.

Atlanta has made it clear, especially over the last few years, that they aren't afraid of arbitration negotiation with their star players. Just last year, four key members of the 2021 World Series winning roster were scheduled for arbitration hearings.

Fried has just one year remaining before he hits unrestricted free agency. The two sides could meet for another hearing next Winter before Fried hits the open market in 2025. Heading into the season, the Braves hold +1000 odds to win the 2023 World Series on FanDuel Sportsbook.
