Since his contract was non-guaranteed the Yankees only owe him 25 percent or about $737,500 out of the $2.95 million he would have been owed had he made the team. This doesn’t necessarily mean that his days with the Yankees are over as the team could resign him and send him to the minors. However, there is a good chance that Gaudin, now a free agent, can find a major league job lessening the likelihood of him returning to the organization.
Now that he is out of the organization you can expect Gaudin, like many other former Yankees, to grow his facial hair back. At least the Yankees forced him to shave that ugly thing while they could.
