Tommy Kahnle, Yankees avoid arbitration with 2018 deal

The Yankees have taken a step to maintain one of the league’s strongest bullpens.

New York and reliever Tommy Kahnle avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $1.3 million deal Thursday.

Kahnle will now be under team control until he becomes a free agent in 2021.

He compiled a 2.70 ERA and 1.313 WHIP in 32 games for the Yankees.
