Tampa, FL (Sports Network) - The New York Yankees signed relief pitcher Gabe White to a one-year contract with a mutual option for a second year, helping the veteran lefthander and the team avoid an arbitration hearing.
Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. White had asked for $2.7 million in arbitration, while the Yankees offered $1.825 million.
White was 5-1 with a 4.05 ERA in 46 appearances with New York and Cincinnati last season. The 32-year old was traded to the Yankees on July 31 for cash considerations.
Entering his 10th major league season, White has accumulated a 33-23 career record and a 4.26 ERA with Montreal, Cincinnati, Colorado and New York.
White was the last of five arbitration-eligible Yankees to agree to terms.
