    This Day In Dodgers History: Orel Hershiser Takes Pay Cut Through Arbitration For 1987 Season

    On February 7, 1987, Orel Hershiser signed with the Los Angeles Dodgers for $800,000, taking a pay cut of 20% from his previous season's salary. It was only the second time since MLB implemented the rule that a player takes less pay due to salary arbitration. During the first Collective Bargaining Agreement between MLB and the Players Association in 1968, the max salary reduction allowed was set at 20%, and and arbitration system was added to the league. During the 1985 season, Hershiser pitched at an extremely high level, posting a 2.03 ERA, 2.73 FIP and 1.03 WHIP in 239.2 innings over 36 games (34 starts).
