All 8 eligible Yankees avoid arbitration

The Yankees avoided arbitration with all of their eligible players on Friday, reaching agreements on one-year deals with outfielder Aaron Judge, infielder Gleyber Torres, catcher Gary Sánchez, first baseman Luke Voit, infielder Gio Urshela, right-hander Chad Green, outfielder Clint Frazier and left-hander Jordan Montgomery, the team announced.

Terms of the deals were not announced, but sources told MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand that Judge will earn $10.175 million in 2021 and Torres will earn $4 million. Feinsand reported the following salaries for 2021: Sánchez, $6.35 million; Voit, $4.7 million; Urshela, $4.65 million; Montgomery, $2.13 million; and Frazier, $2.1 million. The terms of Green’s deal have not been reported.

The 28-year-old Judge appeared to be on an American League MVP Award-worthy track early in the pandemic-shortened season, mashing nine homers before sustaining a right calf injury, then reinjuring it on his first day back in the lineup.

Limited to 28 games, Judge batted .257/.336/.554 with 22 RBIs (140 wRC+). Judge’s 2020 salary was $8.5 million.
