NEW YORK (AP) _ Speedy outfielder Brett Gardner and the New York
Yankees have agreed to a $2.85 million, one-year contract that
avoids salary arbitration.

Gardner can earn $150,000 in performance bonuses under Friday’s
deal: $25,000 each for 375, 400, 425, 450, 475 and 500 plate

Gardner was limited to 31 at-bats last season because of a right
elbow injury that sidelined him from mid-April until late
September. He made $2.8 million.
