  • Yankees' Ian Hamilton: Agrees to minor-league deal

    Hamilton signed a minor-league contract with the Yankees on Friday.

    Hamilton elected free agency after being outrighted off the Guardians' 40-man roster at the end of the season. The right-hander also pitched in the Twins' organization in 2022 and forged a 3.61 ERA over 38 appearances with Triple-A St. Paul and Columbus with a 60:19 K:BB. He'll need to be added to the 40-man roster in order to make any appearances with the Yankees in 2023.

  • Yankees' Gray Fenter: Inks MiLB deal with New York

    Fenter signed a minor-league contract with the Yankees on Wednesday, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports.

    Fenter is back in affiliated ball after delivering a 2.95 ERA with 32 strikeouts over 21.1 innings last season for the Lancaster Barnstormers of the independent Atlantic League of Professional Baseball. The 27-year-old right-hander will probably be ticketed for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre out of the Yankees' camp this spring.

  • Yankees' Gleyber Torres: Avoids arbitration

    Torres agreed to a one-year, $9.95 million contract with the Yankees on Saturday to avoid arbitration, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.

    It's the penultimate year of arbitration eligibility for Torres, and he'll receive a nice raise after he made $6.25 million in 2022. The 26-year-old rebounded at the plate last season with a .257/.310/.451 slash line and 24 home runs after he struggled to a .697 OPS in 2021.

  • Yankees' Michael King: Expects to be ready for Opening Day

    King (elbow) expects to be ready for the start of the season, Brendan Kuty of The Athletic reports.

    King missed the final two-plus months of the 2022 season after fracturing his right elbow. The 27-year-old was excellent before the injury with a 2.29 ERA over 51 innings and a 66:16 K:BB ratio over 34 appearances. Assuming good health, King should be a bridge to Clay Holmes in the late innings.

  • Yankees' Brandon Mayea: Inks $4.4 million deal

    Mayea signed with the Yankees for $4.4 million on Sunday, Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com reports.

    A 17-year-old outfielder from Cuba, Mayea is one of the most talented hitters in this year's J-15 international signing class. He has a projectable frame at 6-foot, 170 pounds and premium bat speed with the athleticism to stick in center field early in his career. The right-handed hitter will look to follow in the impressive line of Jasson Dominguez and Everson Pereira -- two premium outfield prospects the Yankees landed in previous international signing classes.

  • Yankees' Jose Trevino: Agrees to one-year deal

    Trevino and the Yankees avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year deal Friday.

    The Yankees acquired Trevino in a trade with Texas prior to last season and were rewarded with an All-Star campaign. Much of Trevino's value comes from his defense, however, which limits his fantasy appeal. His .248/.283/.388 slash line last season wasn't particularly exciting, and his 11 homers merely tied him for 17th among all catchers.

  • Yankees' Wandy Peralta: Signs one-year deal

    Peralta and the Yankees agreed to a one-year deal Saturday, avoiding arbitration.

    The 31-year-old lefty is coming off a career year, as he finished 2022 with a 2.72 ERA and 1.05 WHIP in 56.1 innings of relief. He saved four games and could be one of the options for saves again this season if Clay Holmes struggles or gets hurt, though the Yankees may instead want to match Peralta up against opposing team's toughest lefties. Left-handed hitters slashed just .155/.211/.211 in 77 plate appearances against him last season.

  • Yankees' Jonathan Loaisiga: Avoids arbiter

    Loaisiga and the Yankees avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year deal Friday.

    Loaisiga took a step back last season, with his ERA jumping from 2.17 to 4.13 while his strikeout rate fell from 24.4 percent to 18.2 percent. If he recaptures his 2021 form this season, he could be one of closer Clay Holmes' top deputies, but a repeat of last year's numbers may not earn him much high-leverage work.

  • Yankees' Michael King: No arbitration necessary

    King (elbow) signed a one-year deal with the Yankees on Friday, avoiding arbitration.

    King got off to an excellent start last season, posting a 2.29 ERA in 51 innings of relief while striking out 33.2 percent of opposing batters. He hit the injured list with a fractured elbow shortly after the All-Star break and wound up missing the rest of the year, though he was able to avoid Tommy John surgery and could be ready for the start of next season.

  • Yankees' Clay Holmes: Reaches one-year deal

    Holmes agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the Yankees on Friday, avoiding arbitration.

    Holmes broke out in his age-29 season last year, finishing the season with a 2.54 ERA and 1.02 WHIP while recording the first 20 saves of his career. He's the clear favorite to lead the Yankees in saves this season, though the fact that his ERA jumped from 1.31 prior to the All-Star break to 4.84 in the second half makes him a higher-risk option than one might expect when looking at only his season-long numbers.

  • Yankees' Kyle Higashioka: Reaches deal without arbitration

    Higashioka and the Yankees avoided arbitration Friday by agreeing to a one-year deal.

    Higashioka homered 10 times in 248 plate appearances last season, but his .227/.264/.389 slash line was good for just an 83 wRC+. He'll enter the 2023 season as Jose Trevino's backup behind the plate.

  • Yankees' Clarke Schmidt: Could see early starts

    Schmidt is a candidate to spend the first month of the season as the Yankees' fifth starter, with Frankie Montas out until at least May due to shoulder inflammation, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports.

    The Yankees have yet to announce their plans and could still bring in another arm from outside the organization, but unless that happens, the competition would appear to be between Schmidt and Domingo German. Schmidt outpitched German in terms of ERA (3.12 vs. 3.61) and FIP (3.59 vs. 4.43) last season, though all but three of the former's appearances came as a reliever. German, by contrast, started 14 games while appearing just once in relief.
