Two-time Cy Young Award winner Tim Lincecum will seek a record-breaking salary via arbitration, asking for $13 million.
The record for the largest salary awarded in the arbitration process is $10. Alfonso Soriano (2006) and Francisco Rodriguez (2008) earned $10 million after losing their arbitration bids. The Phillies’ Ryan Howard earned $10 million when he won his arbitration hearing in 2008.
The Giants countered with $8 million.
