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.
The Bombers acquired Kahnle, along with David Robertson and Todd Frazier, in a trade deadline deal with the White Sox.
In the playoffs, Kahnle earned his only save of the season and allowed three runs over 11.1 innings.
