Yankees, Robertson, submit arbitration numbers

The Yankees took care of almost every stone before the deadline to submit arbitration proposals today, but David Robertson remains un-signed, even though there apparently isn’t a lot of daylight between what the two sides are comfortable with. Via Ken Davidoff, Robertson submitted a proposal for a $3.55 million salary in the upcoming season, while the Yankees offered a $2.85 million salary. If the matter actually goes to a hearing the abritrator will choose between one of those numbers (my guess is that Robertson would win), but with less than $1 million separating them, I have a hard time imagining a deal won’t be struck fairly soon, allowing the Yankees to focus on their pre-arbitration players and filling out the rest of the roster.

    I have a hard time understanding how the Yankees can come to agreement with Logan for $3.15MM yet offer Robertson $2.85MM. Are we in Bazzaro World?

      I agree a lefty specialist compared to Set Up man. But Logan was a closer at one point and didnt get a huge raise.

        I don't see where Logan was ever a closer not in Chicago, Atlanta or NY. The only difference is this is Logans 4th Arb year. and it's Robertson's 2nd.

    Robertson has been huge for us. Pay him an let's move on to the next set of excuses A-rod will have for not producing any type of numbers for us.
