When Major League Baseball and the Players’ Association finally settled on the collective bargaining agreement for the 2022 season, it sent most of March into a bit of a whirlwind. Arbitration was among the activities typically resolved earlier in the offseason that would suddenly need to be figured out in a hurry.

So a deadline was set for Tuesday, March 22nd. That would be the day that teams and players must submit their preferred contracts for arbitration. So expect to see plenty of deals today, as the Yankees have 12 eligible players — more than any team aside from the Mets — and they don’t typically let those contracts extend to a hearing. If they did, those hearings wouldn’t begin until April 7th, though there’s an outside chance that the two sides could still come to a deal and avoid arbitration before then. (Yes, some players around the league will begin the season without a settled contract.)

Below are the Yankees players eligible for arbitration. Salaries will always go up at least a little bit, regardless of 2021 performance. As news filters in throughout the day on whether a new contract was agreed upon or not, we’ll update this post accordingly. All projected salaries are per MLB Trade Rumors.
