Jose Berrios suffered a loss before spring training even started.
The righthander reportedly lost his arbitration case to the Twins on Thursday and will make $4.025 million this season instead of the $4.4 million he requested. The below tweet from Dan Hayes of The Athletic provides insight into why Berrios might have had the decision go against him.
