Yankees avoid arbitration with Brett Gardner

The Yankees will avoid going to arbitration with Brett Gardner as the two sides agreed to a one-year $2.8 million deal, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports.

Gardner submitted a $3.2 million figure to arbitration yesterday while the Yankees submitted a $2.4 million figure so this is exactly in the middle. It’s good to see the two sides agree as arbitration can be a very tough thing for teams and players to go through and the Yankees usually try very hard to avoid it for that reason.

Now that Gardner has agreed to a deal, Russell Martin and Boone Logan are the only arbitration eligible players who have yet to sign.
