Cubs Beat Theriot in Arbitration
MESA, Ariz. (AP) -- The Chicago Cubs beat Ryan Theriot in arbitration and the shortstop will be paid the club's offer of $2.6 million this season instead of his requested $3.4 million.

The hearing was held Friday in St. Petersburg, Fla.

The 30-year-old Theriot batted .284 last season with seven homers, 54 RBIs and 21 steals when he made $500,000.

It was the Cubs' first hearing since first baseman Mark Grace lost in 1993 and was awarded $3.1 million rather than his request for $4.1 million.
