Yankees avoid arbitration with Gardner and Kelley
Three down, two to go.
The Yankees have announced this morning they avoided arbitration with outfielder Brett Gardner and relief pitcher Shawn Kelley.
Kelley will make $1.765 Million in 2014 while Gardner will make $5.6 Million. MLB Trade Rumors predicted Gardner would make approximately $4 Million, but a source within the league suggested Gardner could make significantly more in his walk year.
The Yankees still have to avoid arbitration with Ivan Nova and David Robertson but hey…three out of five in less than 24 hours isn’t bad.
