Howard Wants $18M In Arbitration

Jan 20, 2009 5:59 PM EST

Philadelphia Phillies first baseman Ryan Howard asked for $18 million in salary arbitration Tuesday, the third-highest figure submitted since the process began in 1974.

The Phillies have offered $14M, which would be a $4M raise from 2008.

RealGM Note: Howard was ranked 131st in season FIC and 'deserved' to make just $7M in 2008.
