Urshela agreed to a one-year, $6.55 million contract with the Yankees on Tuesday to avoid arbitration, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.

Urshela took a step back in 2021 with a .267/.301/.419 slash line in 116 games after posting an OPS over .850 in the previous two seasons, but the Yankees are hoping for a rebound in 2022. The 30-year-old finished the season as New York's starting shortstop after Gleyber Torres was moved to the keystone, but the team's offseason additions figure to dictate where Urshela sees most of his playing time in 2022.
