The Associated Press reports that Brett Gardners new contract will pay him $2.85 million next season. Gardner is also eligible for $150,000 in performance bonuses: $25,000 each for 375, 400, 425, 450, 475 and 500 plate appearances. Basically, if he stays healthy, Gardner will make an even $3 million next season.

So whats left for the Yankees in arbitration?
Projections based on MLB Trade Rumors

Phil Hughes – projected to make $5.7 million
Boone Logan – projected tomake $2.8 million
Dave Robertson – projected to make $2.7 million
Joba Chamberlain – projected to make $1.8 million

The Yankees have now avoided arbitration with Gardner and Jayson Nix, who was immediately designated for assignment and has since been outrighted to Triple-A. Catcher Eli Whiteside also avoided arbitration and was designated, only to be claimed by Toronto, which is now responsible for his new contract. Casey McGehee was also arbitration eligible, but the Yankees cut him loose.
