We've looked at the Orioles and Red Sox so far; now let's look at the Yankees players who will be arbitration eligible after the season.
- First time: Brett Gardner, David Robertson
- Second time: Phil Hughes, Joba Chamberlain
- Third time: Boone Logan
- Fourth time: Russell Martin
I expect all six players to be tendered a contract. Robertson, Logan, and Chamberlain should all come in under $2MM. Gardner looks to be in the $2.4-3.3MM range for his first time through; a stolen base title would put him toward the higher end of that range. Hughes will get a mild raise, perhaps to $3.4MM or so. We have Martin around $5.2MM, though his is a little tricky to determine because he's coming from a free agent salary.

Zero comments in a Yankees topic? The world really is coming to an end!
Really not much to say. None of these guys are going to make much of a dent. Hughes and Gardner should get decent raises, but I imagine that’s about it.
K-Rob, Joba and Martin will be offered contracts…have you forgotten them?
Offered contracts, sure, but the only one of them who was likely to get a significant raise previously lost a year to TJ.
GET RID OFF GIRARDI, CASHMAN, BURNETT AND BRING BACK TORRE, MATSUI, DAMON, PETTITE AND THE YANKEES, WILL BE OK FOR THE PLAYOFFS..WITH GIRARDI AND COMPANY STILL THERE, THE YANKEES ARE DOOMED TO FALILURE..
Didn’t these guys win the world series in 2009? Burnett gone? definitely. Bring back the good old days? you’re dreaming. Those guys will never be what they once were.Don’t forget, godzilla and damon were offered but thought they could get more elsewhere. Pettite’s enjoying life with his family. Calm down – we still have the 3rd best record in baseball and a lock for the playoffs. Banish Burnett.
GET RID OFF GIRARDI, CASHMAN, BURNETT AND BRING BACK DAMON, PETTITE, TORRE, MATSUI, MELKY AND PUT BACK POSADA TO THE CATCHERS POSITION.. AND BETTER SIGN GARDNER, MARTIN, CHAMBERLAIN, GRANDERSON, ROBERTSON, LOGAN, HUGHES AND SOME GOOD FREE AGENT PITCHERS OUT THERE. STAY AWAY FROM ALL THE “HAS BEEN’S” AND THE LOOSERS LIKE BURNETT..DO IT AS MR STEINBRENNER (RIP) WOULD HAVE DONE IT..WITH GIRARDI IN CHARGE OF PUTTING BURNETT TO KEEP ON LOOSING GAMES FOR THE YANKEES, WE WONT MAKE IT TO THE PLAYOFFS AT ALL..IS TIME FOR ACTION NOW..
STAY AWAY FROM ALL THE “HAS BEEN’S”
AND BRING BACK DAMON, PETTITE, TORRE, MATSUI, MELKY AND PUT BACK POSADA TO THE CATCHERS POSITION
Funny how Lorig64 talk’s about has been’s and loosers. It’s losers! And you are one for saying “loosers.”
Lorig64 sounds much like a person that is to young to understand…age is a players worst nightmare! Those he wants back have had their day in the sun, they are only good as fillers for the Yankees but, other teams my have them starting on their team…not so much with the Yanks. Who would they replace? And Posada as catcher, sarcasm, right?
wow , talk about needing rehab
