Robertson, Yanks avoid arbitration



Reliever David Robertson and the Yankees have avoided arbitration after agreeing upon a one-year deal worth $3.1 million, according to CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman via Twitter.

Before settling on the dollar amount, Robertson had originally requested $3.55 million, after which the Yankees countered with $2.88 mil. Robertson was arbitration eligible for the 2nd time, after earning $1.6 million this past season, going 2-7 with a 2.65 ERA in 65 outings. He is on track to be a free agent come 2014.

Ever since my parents bought me a Paul O'Neill shirt at my first Yankees game back in 1994 I've been a diehard fan. I graduated from Springfield College in Springfield, Mass., in 2011 with a degree in Communications/Sports Journalism, so writing about the Yankees has always been a passion of mine.
