Phil Hughes avoids arbitration with one-year deal

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Jan 16, 2013 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

The Yankees just announced that Phil Hughes has agreed to a one-year contract, avoiding arbitration. The terms of the deal were not announced, but this is Hughes’ third and final year of arbitration and MLBTradeRumors — which has an awfully good formula for predicting this sort of thing — estimated a $5.7 million deal for Hughes.

Dave Robertson, Joba Chamberlain and Boone Logan are the Yankees remaining arbitration eligible players without a contract.

UPDATE: A source says Hughes got $7.15 million.

    Let the Nationals worry about Boone Logan’s arbitration and deal him for Michael Morse! :)

    Good. That’s one less thing to be concerned about for now.

    Too bad it wasn’t a 3 or 4 year extension.

    ;)

    Wow, total WTF at the Manti Te’o fake girlfriend thing. I mean, why? Why the hell would anyone even orchestrate something like that? That dude cannot be mentally stable. I wonder if this will hurt his draft stock at all. It would sure make me a little more wary. What a lunatic.

    Half serious speculation – maybe he’s gay and made up a girlfriend so that his very religious family would think he’s not gay. Then the lie got out of control obviously.

    “It went great,” a source with knowledge of the procedure told Newsday. “They reshaped the bone, they repaired the labrum. They were worried about the cartilage, the arthritis, it was minimal. They dissipated the cyst. Dr. Kelly said it went great and he should be on track, as long as he rehabs properly, for right after the All-Star game.”

    Thanks, pat. If true, great news on Alex.

    “Half serious speculation – maybe he’s gay”

    Will this adversely impact his potential election to the Baseball Hall of Fame?

    Will this adversely impact his potential election to the Baseball Hall of Fame?

    Depends on if he’s a top or bottom. According to sources (DONNYBROOK), voters are biased towards tops and have a very low opinion of bottoms. Mike Piazza was a catcher after all …

    Now if he’s a power bottom that’s an entirely different discussion.

    Pat-

    Thanks for the link. When it was first announced last month that he was going to get “resurfacing” of the femoral head, I couldn’t understand such a quick recovery to play baseball, as hip resurfacing involves placing a new metal femoral head. Maybe I heard that wrong.

    I attached this link a few times today on Dr Bryan Kelly’s technique for Femoro Acetabular Impingement Surgery:

    I’ll guess 6.1 million for Hughes

  10. Yankee Trader January 16th, 2013 at 6:01 pm

    Blake-

    Another 16-13 year with an ERA 4.23, 35 homers allowed and righties batting .308 with .928 OPS. If he performs at that level do the Yankees let him walk?

    It may come down to whether he provides reach-arounds. :neutral:

  12. Nick in SF January 16th, 2013 at 6:07 pm

    ESPN crawl update: San Diego State — presumably located in or near San Diego, CA, close to the Pacific Ocean — will remain in the Mountain West athletic conference and not move to the Big East athletic conference.

  13. Nick in SF January 16th, 2013 at 6:13 pm

    Also, ESPN is on the Chip Kelly story right now but they’re about to break to the Manti- Te’O story, and they’re flashing this:

    “Breaking News: Manti Te’o's Girlfriend Did Not Exist — Full Story Ahead”

    I have at least one ex-girlfriend who probably wishes I didn’t exist, so either she or I can sympathize.

  14. Patrick January 16th, 2013 at 6:13 pm

    Hughes got $7.15 million .. kinda high, no?

  15. pat January 16th, 2013 at 6:14 pm

    FeinsandNYDN
    Two sources say Phil Hughes’ 2013 deal with the Yankees is for $7.15 million.

  16. Yankee Trader January 16th, 2013 at 6:14 pm

    7.15M per Feinsand

  17. Patrick January 16th, 2013 at 6:18 pm

    Haha apparently Te’o is trying to say that someone pranked him. I thought he was on the phone with this girlfriend for 8 hours at a time. That’s one elaborate prank I guess!

  18. Warning Track Power January 16th, 2013 at 6:18 pm

    Hughes needs to have a break out season or it’s time to let him walk
    I don’t think the Yankees can settle for mediocre in 2013.
    The team needs Hughes to leave no doubt he is a top tier pitcher
    and a Yankee for life.

    A tick yea….not terrible though.

    Trader,
    If he repeats his 2012 then I think they will let him go yes because I think some team will pay him pretty nicely

  20. Patrick January 16th, 2013 at 6:29 pm

    Brandon McCarthy ?@BMcCarthy32
    *Manti Te’o watches Clint Eastwood speaking to an empty chair* *nods approvingly*

  21. blake January 16th, 2013 at 6:30 pm

    So Te’o's girlfriend was about as legit as Notre Dames football team?

  22. Patrick January 16th, 2013 at 6:31 pm

    Yep or as I saw on twitter:

    Stephen Douglas ?@CRM_Stephen
    Manti Te’o wasn’t missing tackles in the National Championship, he was hugging his girlfriend.

    “Half serious speculation – maybe he’s gay and made up a girlfriend so that his very religious family would think he’s not gay. Then the lie got out of control obviously.”

    Patrick,

    I agree and this is one of the only explanations that I could come up with, that maybe he’s gay and it had something to do with covering that up. I mean not much else makes a ton of sense.

    Some writer is already starting an Arod is addicted to pain killers story

  27. blake January 16th, 2013 at 6:44 pm

    @jonmorosi: #Mariners close to acquiring Mike Morse, sources tell @Ken_Rosenthal and me.

    Screw!

  28. Patrick January 16th, 2013 at 6:45 pm

    He’s on horse tranquilizers in that picture

    Cashman is in a vodka induced comma lying on his office floor after dying from a broke leg on Oregan Trail

  30. Yankee Trader January 16th, 2013 at 6:51 pm

    Blake-

    Probably Morse for one of the Mariners top lefty pitching prospects

  31. Chip January 16th, 2013 at 6:51 pm

    Mariners were also close to getting Upton.

    Before you freak out on Cash lets see if a) a deal happens and b) what Seattle gives up for him. It’s possible he is going to Seattle because they grossly overpaid for him.

    That roster makes no sense btw…

  32. blake January 16th, 2013 at 6:53 pm

    @AdamKilgoreWP: Sources: Nats trade Michael Morse to M’s, get back prospect A.J. Cole in three-team deal. http://t.co/AXG2jQcm

  33. blake January 16th, 2013 at 6:54 pm

    Jaso to Oakland and AJ Cole to the Nats

  34. blake January 16th, 2013 at 6:56 pm

    I guess Jaso was available after all…..

  35. MTU January 16th, 2013 at 6:56 pm

    Rosy told me Jaso was not available.

    I told her he was for the right players.

    Unfortunately they weren’t ours.

    :(

  36. blake January 16th, 2013 at 6:57 pm

    So Jack Z basically traded Jaso for Mike morse? That’s terrible…..

  37. blake January 16th, 2013 at 6:57 pm

    @DCameronFG: Morse isn’t even obviously a better hitter than Jaso, even before factoring in position, age, handedness, salary…

  38. blake January 16th, 2013 at 6:57 pm

    Have to figure Seattle would have given more than Jaso for Granderson

  39. blake January 16th, 2013 at 7:03 pm

    Basically the Nats trade morse to get AJ Cole back….so that’s a pretty good return for a year of Morse. Nice job by Rizzo….the trade makes no sense for Seattle though

  40. blake January 16th, 2013 at 7:07 pm

    Rizzo worked it again here…. Aside from the Strasburg mess he’s killed it the last couple of years
