The Yankees signed Brian Bruney for one year and $725,000, avoiding arbitration.
Bruney had been seeking $845,000 and the Yankees were offering $640,000. The only unsigned Yankees is now Chien-Ming Wang. His arbitration hearing is reportedly scheduled for Feb. 15 in St. Petersburg, Fla.
It’s likely the Yankees willcome to some sort of agreement with Wang before then. They are only $600,000 apart.
