ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) Reliever Jerry Blevins has defeated the Washington Nationals in salary arbitration and will earn $2.4 million this year instead of the team's $2.2 million.

Dan Brent, Robert Herzog and Jeanne Wood made the decision Wednesday, a day after hearing arguments.

Blevins spent his first seven big league seasons with Oakland and was traded to Washington in December 2013 for minor league outfielder Billy Burns. Blevins went 2-3 with a 4.87 ERA and 66 strikeouts in 57 1-3 innings last season over 64 appearances and made $1,675,000.

Players and teams have split six decisions. Fourteen cases remain scheduled through Feb. 20.
