Sherman: Yankees avoid arbitration with Ivan Nova


Via Joel Sherman: The Yankees have avoided arbitration with Ivan Nova by agreeing to a one-year deal worth $3.3M. Matt Swartz projected him to earn $2.8M in 2014. Nova pitched to a 3.10 ERA (3.47 FIP) in 139.1 innings last year while missing time with a biceps issue.

The Yankees have signed all five of their arbitration-eligible players: Nova, Brett Gardner ($5.6M), David Robertson ($5.125M), Shawn Kelley ($1.7625M), and Frankie Cervelli ($700k).

    Glad that’s out the way. Now go get Tanaka.

    Anyone have a rough estimate at what this makes our payroll look like now?

    I like avoiding unnecessary acrimony with players who may need to be signed longer term in the future.

    Nice looks like a hometown discount.
