Relief pitcher Tony Watson lost his arbitration case and will make $5.6 million this year.
That still is a 62 percent raise for Watson, who last year made $3.45 million. The left-hander inherited the closer’s role in late July when Mark Melancon was traded.
All of the position players checked in before Thursday’s deadline. The entire 64-man camp roster is accounted for, although Jung Ho Kang’s report date remains to be determined.
