Yankees sign David Robertson to one-year deal, avoid arbitrationBy
The Yankees and David Robertson have avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year contract worth $3.1M according to Jon Heyman. The team has since confirmed the agreement. The 27-year-old setup man filed for $3.55M before last Friday’s deadline while the club countered with $2.85M, so they settled just below the midpoint. Nothing surprising here. I wrote a little about a multi-year extension for Robertson a few days ago, but that wasn’t going to happen. He won’t be eligible for free agency until after the 2014 season, so they’ll go through this again next winter.
