A look at the Yankees players who will be arbitration-eligible after the season…
- First time: Joba Chamberlain, Phil Hughes, Dustin Moseley
- Second time: Boone Logan
- Third time: Sergio Mitre
- Fourth time: Chad Gaudin
Hughes and Chamberlain are the team's most interesting cases. Though Joba still has a respectable 3.79 career ERA, his recent work hasn't been great and the time spent in the bullpen has resulted in only 16 career wins. He won't get a massive salary. Hughes will be coming off a strong platform year, but his career numbers are similarly limited. He should fall short of $4MM.
Logan will probably be tendered a contract; it's not too risky and he showed promise against lefties when he was in the bigs. Gaudin, Mitre, and Moseley are the biggest non-tender candidates.
