Joba, Yankees agree to a deal

Friday, January 18, 2013 - Updated: 5:49 PM

NEW YORK (AP) -- Reliever Joba Chamberlain and the New York Yankees have agreed to a one-year contract worth $1,875,000, avoiding salary arbitration.

Chamberlain returned Aug. 1 after being sidelined for 14 months by elbow and ankle injuries. The 27-year-old right-hander went 1-0 with a 4.35 ERA in 22 games, striking out 22 in 20 2-3 innings.

His deal, which is not guaranteed, gives Chamberlain a raise of $200,000 and contains performance bonuses for games finished.

Two Yankees remain in arbitration: right-hander David Robertson and left-hander Boone Logan.

New York's projected payroll is at about $200 million for 16 players, including $8.5 million the Yankees are paying Pittsburgh as part of last year's trade that sent A.J. Burnett to the Pirates.
