Yankees avoid arbitration with Joba Chamberlain, Boone Logan


New York Yankees Joba Chamberlain

The Yankees agreed to terms on one-year deals with relief pitchers Joba Chamberlain and Boone Logan over the weekend and will avoid arbitration with each pitcher. They had already agreed to a deal with Phil Hughes, leaving David Robertson as the only arbitration eligible player not under contract.

Joba signed for $1.875 million with another possible $275K in incentives based on games finished, according to Ken Davidoff of the NY Post. That’s only slightly more than the $1.8 million MLBTradeRumors projected. Joba earned $1.675 million last year and looks to have cost himself a decent amount of money with Tommy John Surgery and the trampoline accident.

Logan landed himself $3.15 million, according to CAA Sports. That’s more than, but not a ton more than, the $2.8 million MLBTR projected. He earned $1.875 million last season.

D-Rob and the Yankees exchanged arbitration figures over the weekend with him asking for $3.55 million and the team countering with $2.85 million, per Jon Heyman of CBS Sports. MLBTR suggested that he would make $2.7 million so it looks like either way he’ll be exceeding that. He earned $1.6 million in 2012.
