With Torres under contract, that means the Yankees have agreed to deals with all of their arbitration-eligible players.

The deal is reportedly worth $9.95 million, per multiple reports, which is the midpoint between the $10.2 million Torres had filed for and the $9.7 million the Yankees offered. This is his third of four trips through arbitration, as he qualified as a Super Two after the 2020 season.

Torres slashed .257/.310/.451 this season with 24 home runs, 76 RBI, and 73 runs scored, getting back to the All-Star-like form he showed in 2017-18.
