MLB hot stove: Rockies All-Star Nolan Arenado isn’t concerned about contract

first_img“My agent (Joel Wolfe) is taking care of all of that. I just want us to win again because there is nothing better. And I want to do it (in Colorado).”Arenado is set to become a free agent after the 2019 season, but he hasn’t yet reached a new deal with the Rockies. Arenado was seeking $30 million, but the Rockies countered with a $24 million contract when the two sides met earlier this month. The Post notes there has been speculation that Arenado will ultimately land a deal around $27 million, either through negotiations or arbitration. Related News Nolan Arenado isn’t concerned about his contract, despite uncertainty about his long-term future with the Rockies. “Is it a distraction? Absolutely not,” Arenado said earlier this week, via The Denver Post. “My whole goal is to be ready for the season and then let the rest of it take care of itself. “Arbitration is going on, so there are talks going on, but honestly, it’s been very easy,” Arenado explained. “There’s been no problems, no anger or anything. It’s been very honest on both sides, which is what you want. We all have a thick skin.”While some fans believe the Rockies should do what it takes to keep the six-time Gold Glove winner through a long-term contract, others question whether it’s worth investing so much in one player. Arenado believes fans have a right to their own opinions, and he’s just focusing on the upcoming season.

They have always shown me love and treated me right, and that’s something I’ve always appreciated.“This is a huge season coming up and another chance to do something special, so we need the fans to come out and be loud again. I love Denver. I can’t wait to get this started.”Arenado’s new salary is expected to break the arbitration record of $23 million, which was set last year by Josh Donaldson when he was with the Blue Jays.
