Joba Chamberlain, Yankees agree at $1,875,000

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) - Reliever Joba Chamberlain and the New York Yankees have agreed to a 1-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, 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.

    A law enforcement official says he sent a video of Ray Rice punching his then-fiancée to an NFL executive five months ago, while league executives have insisted they didn't see the violent images until this week. The person played The Associated Press a 12-second voicemail from an NFL office number on April 9 confirming the video arrived. A female voice expresses thanks and says: "You're right. It's terrible."
