The projected salaries for members of the New York Yankees up for arbitration have been calculated and released.The oh-so-exhilarating process of arbitration is closely approaching and Matt Swartz at MLB Trade Rumors has calculated the projected salaries that members of the New York Yankees are expected to earn.
The tactic of coming up with the anticipated salaries can be explained here and the numbers in parenthesis represent the player’s MLB service time.
- Michael Pineda (5.099) $7.8MM
- Dustin Ackley (5.087) $3.2MM
- Nathan Eovaldi (5.013) $7.5MM
- Adam Warren (4.031) $2.3MM
- Didi Gregorius (3.159) $5.1MM
- Dellin Betances (3.078) $3.4MM
- Austin Romine (3.045) $900K
- Aaron Hicks (3.041) $1.4MM
- Tommy Layne (2.139) $1.2MM
Looking at the list, Gregorius jumps off the page as someone who may deserve more than $5.1 million.
After all, he became the just the third shortstop Yankees history to hit at least 20 HR and bat over .275. The only other two other two were Tom Tresh in 1962 and Derek Jeter in 1999, 2001, and 2004.
