Didi - $8.25mn
Betances - $5.1mn
Hicks - $2.8mn

Glad a lot of these are being settled now.

If the Yankees want to scrape every dollar to stay under the cap for next year, they could do better for a backup catcher than Romine and probably save a few hundred K.

Ok this is now officially a pet peeve of mine. There is no salary cap in baseball, what you are referring to is a luxury tax threshold. Every Yankees post with someone calling it a cap will now get a similar response.
When the luxury tax is so outlandishly punitive

It functions almost the same way as a salary cap. Weird thing to get your panties in a wad about.
Glad they avoided another ugly arbitration battle

With Betances
Kahnle too, $1.3M

So only Shreve is left, and he'll be under $1M.

Does anyone know where that puts the payroll as of now?
They are still under the cap.  
LarmerTJR : 1/12/2018 6:45 pm : link
Better to pay 20% over on cash over the cap.
Itís 50% if they stay over the cap.
The cap is really a pain in the ass.
Dumb cap.
Other Yanks news

minor leagues. Both Cito Culver and Dante Bichette Jr. have signed on with other organizations.
Looks like Shreve signed too...$825K.

Man, it is good to see that

Cash is working hard to save money and stay under the cap.
Great job by Cashman  
eric2425ny : 1/12/2018 7:23 pm : link
He really had to put his thinking cap on today to make these moves to help us stay under the cap.
Yep awesome job by Cash- staying under the CAP  
Stu11 : 1/12/2018 7:43 pm : link
I mean it means everything to this organization to stay under the CAP
one more step toward staying under the salary cap

Getting awfully tight but stay below the cap and next year we go raw uncapped and blow a huge load

Exactly. And I hope every single poster refers to it as a cap from now on.
I wonder if Cash and the front office employs a capologist

Like the Giants do with Kevin Abrams? Bc theyíre doing a great job building the roster with the cap in mind this offseason
Good job  
BocaGiants91 : 1/12/2018 8:34 pm : link
Itís still not a cap though guys. There trying to reset their luxury tax penalty % on dollars they are above the luxury tax threshold, they will be back to going over next year if it means a big ticket item like Machado or Harper.
Very integral time to stay under the cap  
adamg : 1/12/2018 8:34 pm : link
Well done, Cash.
