Juan Soto, Trea Turner, Soto, Josh Bell, Nats agree for 2021

WASHINGTON (AP) NL batting champion Juan Soto, shortstop Trea Turner and first baseman Josh Bell agreed to 2021 contracts for substantial raises with the Washington Nationals on Friday, leaving the team with no players headed to arbitration.

Soto's one year-deal is worth $8.5 million, Turner's is for $13 million and Bell's is $6.35 million. Friday was when players and teams were to exchange proposed salary figures for arbitration.

A young, slugging outfielder, Soto hit .351 in 2020, also leading the National League in on-base percentage (.490) and slugging percentage (.695). He finished with a team-high 13 homers and 37 RBIs in 47 games during the pandemic-truncated season.
