Yeah, gotta do that.

I can keep him for $8 which makes my decision to keep a little easier

Can keep him at $12, and with Hicks out for a good long while . . . yeah, he's old, but I don't see how he doesn't get 400 ABs if healthy.

Brett Gardner, also 36, will get twice what Howie Kendricks is getting. If another team tried to lure him with a two-year offer, he's not saying.

32.  Brett Gardner – Yankees.  One year, $10MM.  Gardner has been indispensable in his 12-year career with the Yankees, as he just keeps churning out 3-4 WAR seasons.  In fact, his 21.9 WAR from 2013-19 ranks 12th among all MLB outfielders, ahead of players like Justin Upton, Jason Heyward, and A.J. Pollock. He’s a well-rounded contributor who generally rates as above average on both offense and defense.  The 36-year-old Gardner has typically served as a left fielder, but he proved more than capable of  center when he took more than half of the Yankees’ innings at that position in Aaron Hicks’ absence.  It’s hard to picture him in anything other than a Yankees uniform, but perhaps some team could lure him with a two-year deal. The Phillies, D-backs, Indians and others could weigh outfield additions, but with Hicks likely out for most of the 2020 season following Tommy John surgery, a Bronx reunion seems all the likelier.

Signed with Yankees for one year, $12.5MM.

Signed a one-year deal with the Yankees for $12.5 million. Another $10 million for 20121 if the team doesn't buy him out for $2.5 million.
