Washington closer Chad Cordero won his arbitration case Wednesday, getting a raise to $4.15 million from $525,000.
The Nationals argued for a $3.65-million salary for the right-hander, who was 7-4 with a 3.19 earned-run average and 29 saves last season. Cordero led the majors with a franchise-record 47 saves in 2005 for Washington.
J.D. Drew showed up at spring training for the Boston Red Sox with a $70-million, five-year deal, saying he's as healthy as he has been in his career and he's sure his right shoulder will hold up throughout the duration of his contract.
"Absolutely," the right fielder and former Dodger said. "I've been in a situation over the last three years where I've changed some things in the way I kind of manage myself off the field, and that's really paid off."
