Chacon and Yankees Settle Sans Arbitration
Saturday, February 11, 2006
With a hearing all set to take place Monday, the Yankees and pitcher Shawn Chacon managed to avoid arbitration by agreeing on a salary at the eleventh hour. The official figure has not yet been released, but Chacon’s 2006 salary is rumored to be about $3.6 million, half a million more that the Yankees’ original offer and $550 thousand less than Chacon’s desired $4.15 million.

Now that Chacon’s salary has been settled, the Yanks can go forth into spring training with a new focus: hammering down their starting pitching rotation. They could potentially run with a six-man rotation - - Johnson, Mussina, Chacon, Pavano, Wright and Wang - - but depending on how things go in Florida next month it’s possible that one of those men (guess who) could be moved to the pen.

    Chacon deserves the raise. He helped save the Yankees season last year. If it had gone to the arbitrator, I think Chacon would have won.

    Based on talent, Pavano or Wright should go to the pen. Based upon salary, it'll be Wang or Chacon.
