When asked by WFAN’s Mike Francesa if the team would finish above .500, the power-hitting first basemen did not hesitate to reply, “Yes, I believe so.”
The deal, was $100K under the midpoint between the $8.2 million he had asked for in arbitration and the $7 million the Yankees had previously offered.
Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera, Manny Ramirez and Hideki Matsui failed to receive salary arbitration offers as one of the first deadlines of baseball’s offseason passed.
The Yankees have decided to decline arbitration for high-profile free agent Derek Jeter, reports WFAN’s Jon Heyman.
