Arbitration: Shawn Kelley reaches agreement with Yankees


The New York Yankees have taken another player off of the arbitration board in coming to terms with right handed reliever Shawn Kelley.

Joel Sherman reports that Kelley will receive $1.765 million in 2014 with $25,000 in incentives if he appears in 55 games. In his first year with the Yankees, 2013, Kelley earned $935,000. In that season, he pitched to a 4-2 record with a 4.39 ERA over 57 games. He will figure to be a set up man, depending on who the Yankees tab to close their games.
