A little housecleaning in the Yankees clubhouse today -- the club has signed LHP Boone Logan to a 1-year, $1.875 million deal to avoid arbitration. They've also designated Kevin Whelan for assignment, clearing room for Hiroki Kuroda now that the deal is official:
Lefty Boone Logan and Yankees agree at $1,875,000 - AP
"The agreement Thursday was just below the midpoint between the $2.1 million he had asked for last week in arbitration and the $1.7 million New York had offered. But Logan can earn a $25,000 bonus if he appears in 55 games this season."
