Roughly 24 hours before the non-tender deadline, the Yankees have re-signed Sergio Mitre to a $900,000 deal according to Jerry Crasnick. He can earn another $200,000 in incentives.
That’s a modest raise over the $850,000 Mitre earned in 2010. There’s no word in Crasnick’s tweet, but my guess is it’s a non-guaranteed deal, kind of like Chad Gaudin’s last winter.
Bringing back Mitre leaves Dustin Moseley as the last non-tender candidate among the Yankees arbitration-eligible players. The Yankees have plenty of space on their roster, and Moseley pitched well enough last season that I expect the Yankees to bring him back. This is Moseley’s first year of arbitration eligibility, so he shouldn’t cost a ton of money, and he would give the Yankees options in spring training.
