Hughes, three others, file for arbitration

Yesterday was the deadline for eligible players to file for arbitration, and four Yankees were among those who did just that. Phil Hughes, David Robertson, Joba Chamberlain, and Boone Logan submitted their paperwork, and will go to an arbitration hearing next month if an agreement between the two sides isn’t reached beforehand.

Of the four cases, Hughes probably has the most interesting one. This is his final trip through arbitration, he’ll be a free agent next year, and he has some success (albeit not a ton of consistency) as a starting pitcher in the A.L. East. MLB Trade Rumors projects him to earn just shy of $6 million in salary next season.

  1. I have no doubt that all 4 players will come to agreement with the Yankees sooner rather then go to arbitration.

  2. Are any possible Morse deals including Logan on hold pending what Logan's salary ends up being?

  3. According to MLBTR the Yankees and Hughes have come to an agreement on a 1 year deal avoiding arbitration. No specifics yet.
