It doesn’t mean much, but Chad Gaudin and Boone Logan have filed for salary arbitration.
The Yankees can still negotiate a contract with one or both before actually arbitration hearings take place in February. The players and Yankees will submit salary figures on Tuesday, and if the cases make it all the way to a hearing, an arbitrator will choose one number or the other. But contracts are quite often negotiated before an actual arbitration hearing.
The Yankees had four other arbitration-eligible players: Brian Bruney and Melky Cabrera were traded, Chien-Ming Wang was non-tendered and Sergio Mitre has already agreed to a one-year deal.
