‘Ace’ Corbin Burns (29, Milwaukee Brewers), 바카라who failed to narrow the difference of 740,000 dollars (approximately 960 million won) and lost in salary adjustment with the club, revealed his wounded heart.
The Associated Press reported on the 17th (Korean time) that Burns, who attended the salary adjustment committee, was upset.
The previous day (16th), the Adjustment Committee announced the results of the annual salary adjustment of Burns and Milwaukee.
Regarding Burns’ annual salary for the 2023 season, the Adjustment Committee ruled on the club’s proposed amount of 10.1 million dollars (about 13 billion won), not the 10.75 million dollars (about 13.96 billion won) that Burns wanted.

Burns, who won the National League Cy Young Award in 2021, played his part last year as well, with a 12-8 loss and 2.94 ERA. His strikeout average of 243 also led him in the category.
However, going through this salary adjustment committee, Burns felt that the team was pointing to him as the reason for not making it to the postseason last year, and he was angry at this.

Barnes will qualify as a free agent (FA) after the 2024 season.
