Tommy Pham wins his arbitration case and will make $4.1M in 2019.
St. Petersburg, FL – In his first year of arbitration, Pham will get a significant bump in salary from his $570,000 in 2018. In fact, through 13 professional seasons he had yet to add another comma to his salary before today’s victory.

The Rays were countering with $3.5M and have now lost five consecutive arbitration cases. The other four before today: LHP Drew Smyly, RHP Jake Odorizzi (two times), and SS Adeiny Hechavarria.
Pham, who will turn 31 on March 8th, is slated to be the every day left-fielder for the Rays this season. He’s coming off a season between St. Louis and Tampa Bay where he hit .275/.367/.464 with 21 home runs and 63 RBI in 137 games (career-high).
