The Yankees’ decision-makers will have a few calls to make on Thursday, as baseball’s non-tender deadline forces decisions on a group of four unsigned pitchers.
Dustin Moseley will have his status examined as Thursday’s 11:59 p.m. ET deadline to tender contracts for the 2011 season approaches. Late Wednesday, Sergio Mitre agreed to $900,000 deal with the club and could earn an additional $200,000 in incentives, according to a tweet by ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick.
New York must also offer deals to Joba Chamberlain, Phil Hughes and Boone Logan by that point. If a player is not tendered a contract, he immediately becomes a free agent and can negotiate with any team.
Who would have thought that the day would come in 2010 where the question of “Will the Yankees non-tender Joba?” warranted entertainment, albeit just a wild notion?
