Yankees' Brett Gardner: Deal includes 2022 options

Gardner's contract with the Yankees includes $1.85 million and a $1 million signing bonus in 2021 as well a player and club option for 2022, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.Per Heyman, Gardner's player option in 2022 would be worth $2.3 million and would convert to a $7.15 million club option or $1.15 million buyout if it is not exercised. Heyman also notes that the most likely scenario is for Gardner to decline the option and be bought out, which would ultimately make the contract worth $4 million. At this point in his career, Gardner's role figures to be that of a fourth outfielder, though manager Aaron Boone has stated that the most tenured Yankee will still see ample playing time.

Yankees' Brett Gardner: Agrees to terms with Yankees

Gardner signed a one-year, $4 million contract with the Yankees on Friday, Ken Davidoff of the New York Post reports.Gardner and the Yankees ramped up discussions over the past several days, and the two sides were able to reach an agreement to bring the 37-year-old back to the Bronx for a 14th season. He appeared in 49 games during the abbreviated 2020 season, slashing .223/.354/.392 with five home runs and 15 RBI. Manager Aaron Boone said Wednesday that he expects Clint Frazier to start in left field in 2021, but Gardner should be a strong contender for the starting job now that he's back with the Yankees.
