Colorado has now agreed to terms with all of its arbitration-eligible players, a big reason to breathe a sigh of relief.
As for Arenado, well, he will be making $26 million the season before he is set to become a free agent and demand what is sure to be a massive contract.

The six-time Gold Glover is well on his way to becoming one of the game's highest-paid players. Have a day, Mr. Arenado. $26 million has a pretty nice ring to it.
