"My win-loss record only tells part of the story," Ohlendorf said. "We went through all my (stats) in the arbitration process. So I don't feel guilty about the salary I'm going to make."
Ohlendorf, 28, had a 4.07 ERA and held hitters to a .260 batting average. The Pirates scored two runs or fewer in 13 of his starts.
"While disappointed with the result, we respect the process," Pirates GM Neal Huntington said.
"I'm glad it's over with," said Ohlendorf, who attended his hearing in Phoenix. "I wasn't too nervous about it. We just had a difference of opinion. I don't think it will affect me in the future. I have a pretty good relationship with the front office."
