Wasn't that figure due to arbitration? And he was in the minors for most of 2019. I always thought it was a waste of money and they were hoping that he could have replicated 2017 in 2018.
well, it was a settlement in lieu of a final year of arbitration.  however, for 2019, before he was paid $3.25MM after losing arbitration, so he got a raise.  The minor league status for most of the year was due to a roster squeeze, but they kept him on the roster for the playoffs and he was huge doing what he does best, playing in place of an injured starter and coming off the bench.
