Boone Logan and the Yankees won’t be going through with an arbitration hearing, instead agreeing to a one-year, $1.875 million contract.
Logan submitted a $2.1 million figure while the Yankees countered at $1.7 million, so they’re settling $25,000 below the midpoint. And he can get that $25,000 back in the form of a bonus if he makes at least 55 appearances.
Logan, who made $1.2 million last season, will be arbitration eligible for the third and final time in 2013. In two years with the Yankees he’s thrown 82 innings with a 3.20 ERA and 84/33 K/BB ratio as a left-handed specialist, recording an average of just 2.1 outs per appearance.
