100 Miles Giles netted himself an extra four hundred grand

MLB: World Series-Houston Astros at Los Angeles Dodgers Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

You may have heard that a lot of players are having trouble getting team’s to pay them this off-season.

Kenny G is (probably not) laughing at those people.

On Friday it was announced that Giles won his arbitration case over the Houston Astros. Giles will make his desired $4.6 million salary during the 2018 season. Houston had filed $4.2 million as their number, but the panel sided with Giles, who has posted excellent regular season numbers over his first four Major League seasons.
