The New York Yankees and many others have settled on deals meaning they will avoid the arbitration process. 

According to Jon Heyman of FanRag sports, the New York Yankees have settled with players due for arbitration.

Didi Gregorius avoided the process on a $5.1 million deal while Austin Romine (805K) Michael Pineda ($7.4 million) Adam WarrenAaron Hicks and Tommy Layne also settled with New York.



Last season, Didi became the just the third shortstop Yankees history to hit at least 20 HR and bat over .275 — joining Tom Tresh (1962) and Derek Jeter (1999, 2001, and 2004) as the only three to accomplish the feat.

Additionally, the Yankees’ shortstop slashed .276/.304/.447 with an OPS of .751 and a career-high 20 home runs earned him a nomination for the Hank Aaron award. The last Yankee to take home the award was Jeter, back in 2009.

805K for Romine was also a solid price. The 28-year old is out of options and produced relatively well for a backup catcher in 2016 (.242 BA, one error in 355.1 innings).
