PHOENIX — Atlanta pitcher Mike Foltynewicz and Oakland pitcher Kendall Graveman have lost to their teams in salary arbitration.

The decisions Saturday left players with a 7-6 lead. There is one decision pending in the case of Cleveland pitcher Trevor Bauer and nine hearings scheduled for next week.

Foltynewicz went to arbitration with the Braves over a difference of $100,000, the smallest gap in a hearing since 1994. He will get a raise from $544,000 to $2.2 million, rather than the $2.3 million he requested.

Foltynewicz was 10-13 with a 4.79 ERA last year in a career-high 28 starts and one relief appearance for Atlanta.

Graveman goes from $545,000 to $2.36 million, instead of the $2.6 million he sought. He was 6-4 with a 4.19 ERA in 19 starts and spent considerable time on the disabled list because of a strained right shoulder.
