On Tuesday, four Yankee pitchers filed for arbitration: Joba Chamberlain, Phil Hughes, Boone Logan and David Robertson. According to the Major League Baseball Players Association, 133 total players throughout the majors filed. These players will be asked to exchange salary numbers with their teams by Friday. If no agreements can be reached, arbitration cases will be heard Feb. 4-20, but players and teams can come to terms beforehand. Hughes, who earned just $3.2 million in 2012, could see the highest increase in salary among the four Yanks. Hughes went 16-13 with a 4.23 ERA in 32 starts, while throwing a career high 191 1/3 innings. He is in his third and final year of arbitration eligibility. Logan led the team with 80 appearances in 2012 and made $1.875 million, while Chamberlain saw limited action later in the season due to early injuries; he earned $1.675 million in 2012. Robertson is arbitration eligible for the 2nd time, after earning $1.6 million this past season, going 2-7 with a 2.65 ERA in 65 outings. To be eligible for salary arbitration, a player must have at least three, but less than six years of MLB service. Or, a player must have at least two, but less than three years of service who also accumulated at least 86 days in the previous year and were in the top 17% of all two-year players in service time. These players are known as “Super 2′s.” Essentially, this means a player who almost has three years of service at the Big League level can be eligible for salary arbitration.
