As expected, the Yankees will tender contracts to all six of their arbitration eligible players by tonight’s 11:00 p.m. deadline, according to Dan Barbarisi of the Wall Street Journal.
Those players include Joba Chamberlain, Phil Hughes, Brett Gardner, David Robertson, Russell Martin and Boone Logan. All six players are still relatively cheap and useful to the Yankees so there was never any doubt that any of them would return.
Martin, who a total of $5.375 million after incentives in 2011, will likely get the highest salary of the group as he will no doubt get a raise over that. Hughes, who earned $2.7 million last year, will also get a nice raise despite his waste of a season and will probably be the second highest paid of the group.
