Gardner, 33, has been in New York for nine years and has the fifth-highest on-base percentage among American League outfielders since and has just won a gold glove award. 

The speedster is slated to earn $12.5 million in 2017, $11.5 million in 2018 and a team option for $12.5 million in 2019 which is really a bargain considering he led New York in the runs created category last season.

Headley, 32, slashed .253/.331/.385 overall in 2016 which is arguably mediocre but impressed at the hot corner with seven defensive runs saved, good enough for fifth-best in the AL.

The 2012 gold glover and silver slugger will make $13 million over the next two seasons.
