The Yankees have tendered contracts to all 12 arbitration-eligible players this offseason, with James Paxton, Aaron Judge, and Gary Sanchez the biggest names in that group.
Once a player is offered arbitration, the team and that player’s agent have until a set date — usually at some point in February — to come to terms on a new contract. If that doesn’t happen, both sides submit salary proposals and the player’s salary is determined at a hearing by independent arbitrators.
According to MLB Trade Rumors, here’s what the Yankees’ arbitration-eligible players are projected to make in 2020…
LHP James Paxton: $12.9 million, up from $8.75 million in 2019
2020 is Paxton’s final year of arbitration, meaning he will become an unrestricted free agent after the season if the Yanks don’t agree on a contract extension before then.
The Yankees have tendered contracts to all 40 players currently on the 40-man roster.
