San Francisco catcher Buster Posey received the steepest increase among players in salary arbitration this year.

According to a study by The Associated Press, the 133 players who filed last month gained an average increase of 119 percent. No cases went to a hearing for the first time since arbitration began in 1974.

Posey, the NL batting champion and MVP, led the way with a 13-fold hike to $8 million.

Other big rises were obtained by Baltimore catcher Matt Wieters, an 11-fold increase to $5.5 million. Cincinnati pitcher Mat Latos enjoyed a 10-times increase to an average of $5.75 million as part of a two-year deal.
