Urshela (elbow) and the Yankees reached a one-year, $4.65 million deal Friday, avoiding arbitration, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.
Urshela's salary will nearly double from last year, and he won't require an arbiter during the offseason after striking a deal with the Yankees. He underwent surgery in early December to remove a bone chip from his right elbow, but he should be available for most of spring training as long as he doesn't face any setbacks.
Urshela underwent surgery Friday to remove a bone chip from his right elbow.
Urshela wasn't initially expected to require surgery during the offseason, but he elected to undergo a procedure Friday that went smoothly. He's expected to need three months to recover from surgery, so he could be ready to participate in the majority of spring training if he doesn't encounter any setbacks.
Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Wednesday that Urshela won't require offseason surgery to address the existing bone spur the third baseman has in his right elbow, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports.
Though Urshela was able to play through the bone spur after being reinstated from the 10-day injured list Sept. 15, he acknowledged shortly after his activation that offseason surgery could be needed. After posting an .826 OPS over the remainder of the regular season following his reinstatement, however, Urshela proved that the bone spur wasn't any hindrance at the plate. While rest and rehab won't necessarily resolve the elbow issue permanently, Urshela's 2021 outlook shouldn't be affected at all.
Urshela went 2-for-5 with a grand slam and an additional run scored in Wednesday's Game 2 series-clinching victory over Cleveland.
He also flashed the leather with some good plays in the field. Urshela's fourth-inning blast put the Yankees up 5-4, but each team went on to score five more runs in the 10-9 game.
Urshela indicated Wednesday that offseason surgery to remove a bone spur in his right elbow is a possibility, Brendan Kuty of NJ Advance Media reports.
Urshela recently returned from a stint on the injured list due to the bone spur, and he continues to wear a sleeve over his elbow to mitigate the pain. While the 28-year-old explained that the elbow "feels really good" at the moment, he wouldn't rule out the possibility of offseason surgery. "I don't know yet," he stated. "We're going to have to see how's the elbow at the end of the season." The issue doesn't seem to be affecting Urshela's play; since returning from the IL, he has notched at least one hit in every game, batting .438 (14-for-32).
Urshela went 4-for-5 with a double, a run scored and two RBI during Tuesday's 12-1 win over the Blue Jays.
