C Wilin Rosario given $2.8M

The Colorado Rockies have defeated catcher Wilin Rosario in salary arbitration.

Rosario was given a $2.8 million salary instead of his $3.3 million request on Wednesday by Elizabeth Neumeier, Phillip LaPorte and James Oldham, who heard the case a day earlier.

Rosario, who will turn 26 on Monday, hit .267 with 13 homers and 54 RBIs last year, down from .292 with 21 homers and 79 RBIs in 2013. He made $502,000 last year.

Teams lead players 6-3, the most hearings since teams went 8-6 in 2001.
