PHOENIX (AP) — All-Star closer Josh Hader lost his salary arbitration case against the Milwaukee Brewers, dropping players to 1-6 in hearings this year.
Hader will earn $4.1 million rather than his $6.4 million request.
Hader earned $687,600 last year.
He had 37 saves in 44 chances and went 3-5 with a 2.62 ERA in his second straight All-Star season.
He failed to hold a 3-1 lead in the eighth inning of the NL wild-card game. Seven players remain scheduled for hearings, which run through Feb. 21.
