The Yankees announced they agreed to terms with the 35-year-old outfielder on a one-year contract after declining the $12.5 million club option on his previous deal. The new contract will pay Gardner $7.5 million this season, and he will get a $2 million buyout from the Yankees declining the option. Is this a good move? Gardner batted in the .230’s last season. He will be a year older and more prone to injuries. You decide. EDB
