Three down, three to go: Arbitration decisions going as expected

Jon Heyman has the numbers for the Joba Chamberlain and Dave Robertson deals.

Chamberlain will make a little more than $1.6 million next season, a mild raise from last year’s $1.4-million agreement.

Robertson will make $1.6 million with a little more in incentives. Last year, he was making barely more than the minimum. Not a bad payday for a first year of arbitration.

With half of the Yankees arbitration-eligible players now under contract, things are going almost perfectly as expected. Back in November, MLBTradeRumors used its formula to project salaries for arbitration-eligible players. Those projections had Robertson making $1.5 million, Chamberlain making $1.7 million and Phil Hughes making $3 million (Hughes got $3.2 million).

So what can we expect from the other half?

MLBTradeRumors projects Russell Martin getting $6.7 million, Brett Gardner getting $3.3 million and Boone Logan getting $1.6 million.
