Houston Astros’ catcher Jason Castro didn’t have the same luck that other players facing arbitration have had these last few days.

The twenty-eight year old wanted to increase his $4 million salary to $5.25 million but became the first player to lose his case after the ruling decided by Matt Goldberg, Gary Kendellen and James Oldham  on Tuesday, setting his salary at $5 million, according to the Associated Press.

Although Castro is a staple behind the plate for Houston, his hitting did suffer in 2015 with a career low .211 average along with eleven homers and thirty-one homers. His struggles continued into the post-season as he hit just .063 in six games.
