Chamberlain, Yankees avoid arbitration with one-year deal

The SportsXchange

Right-hander Joba Chamberlain, who pitched only two months last season because of pair of injuries, avoided arbitration Thursday night and agreed to a one-year contract with the New York Yankees.

He will make $1.875 this season, according to the New York Post. He made $1.65 million last season.

Chamberlain didn't pitch in 2012 until August. He was recovering from Tommy John surgery, but was shelved even further after dislocating his ankle in a trampoline accident.

He pitched 20 2/3 innings with a 4.35 ERA. He is expected to be a middle reliever this season.
