Marlins star Dan Uggla beat the team in arbitration, winning an award for $5.35 million, SI.com has learned.

Florida was proposing $4.4 million.

Uggla's victory comes in his first arbitration season and could impact his salaries for 2010 and '11, as well, possibly impacting how the cost-conscious Marlins handle his case. It's a big loss for them, as every million counts.

Uggla hit .260 with 32 home runs and 92 RBIs and has been one of the better producers among middle infielders in baseball. In terms of arbitration, his obvious comparison is Alfonso Soriano, who got $5.4 million as a young second baseman. The Soriano precedent may well have won his case for him.
