Astros' Ken Giles: Wins arbitration case
Giles won his arbitration case and will make $4.6 million in 2018, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports.
The Astros came in at $4.2 million but will have to fork over a little more money to their expected closer during this upcoming season. In 2017, Giles posted a 2.30 ERA and 1.04 WHIP with 34 saves and a 83:21 K:BB in 63 appearances. Even though Giles struggled mightily during the club's postseason run, he is set to begin the 2018 campaign back in the ninth-inning role, but could be removed for Chris Devenski or Will Harris should troubles persist.
