Yankees avoid arbitration with all eligible players except Luis Severino

Good news: Severino is the only player heading to arbitration. The Yankees weren’t able to agree to terms with Luis Severino by today’s deadline, but we know that they’ve made agreements with Greg Bird, Austin Romine, and Aaron Hicks. News just broke that they’ve agreed to terms with Dellin Betances, Sonny Gray, Tommy Kahnle, and James Paxton too. Here’s a complete breakdown of the arbitration news: Bird - $1.2 million The first baseman had an injury-shortened and mostly ineffective 2018, but hopes to rebound this season.

Four reasons the Yankees should pursue Adam Ottavino even after signing Zach Britton

Over the weekend the Yankees bolstered their bullpen and agreed to a unique two-year contract with Zach Britton. It’s two years with a two-year club option or a one-year player option. Britton rejoins Aroldis Chapman, Dellin Betances, Chad Green, and Jonathan Holder in the bullpen. A pretty good relief core, that is. The other three […] The post Four reasons the Yankees should pursue Adam Ottavino even after signing Zach Britton appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

The Yankees already have a reclamation project in the bullpen in Tommy Kahnle

The Yankees reportedly hope to add two relievers between now and Opening Day. Two relievers to replace David Robertson and Zach Britton, and hey, it is entirely possible they will re-sign Robertson and/or Britton. Even with Aroldis Chapman, Dellin Betances, Chad Green, and Jonathan Holder in tow, there’s still room for more quality relievers in […] The post The Yankees already have a reclamation project in the bullpen in Tommy Kahnle appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

What would extensions look like for the Yankees’ impending free agents?

What would extensions look like for the Yankees’ impending free agents?

With Didi Gregorius, Aaron Hicks, and Dellin Betances nearing free agency, what would it take to lock them up? Earlier this week, I looked at the Yankees’ candidates for extensions. Sure, it would be great to lock up the likes of Aaron Judge and Luis Severino, but with those players so far from free agency, it’s tough to pin down extensions for them. I focused on the Yankees that were closing in on free agency: Didi Gregorius, Dellin Betances, and Aaron Hicks. I concluded that Hicks looked like the best long-term bet, though the Yankees certainly have the financial wherewithal to keep...

Which of the Yankees’ extension candidates is most appealing?

Which of the Yankees’ extension candidates is most appealing?

Of Didi Gregorius, Dellin Betances, and Aaron Hicks, who should the Yankees be most interested in extending? For the most part, the players that have been a part of the Yankees’ core in recent years will all be around again in 2019. The team stands to lose some of its rentals from last season, namely Andrew McCutchen, Zach Britton, and Lance Lynn, but with the likes of CC Sabathia and Brett Gardner locked up, all the players that have been here for some time will be back for another go. That might not be true next offseason. A handful of productive players that have called the Bronx home...
