Gardner re-signs with Yankees after option declined

Brett Gardner and the New York Yankees agreed to a one-year, $7.5 million deal on Wednesday that allows the outfielder to return for his 12th season with the team.The Yankees declined Gardner’s $12.5 million option for 2019 before the two sides negotiated the deal. Gardner receives a $2 million buyout due to the option not being picked up.Despite the $3 million difference, the 35-year-old Gardner is happy to be staying put.”I wasn’t sure what to expect at the end of the season,” Gardner told MLB.com, “but being able to come back and rejoin this special group of guys we have in place, continue my career in a Yankees uniform — and hopefully finish it in a Yankees uniform — it means a great deal to me.”We have some unfinished business. It was tough to sit back and watch the rest of the postseason this year. It was a great learning experience for us. We have a young team and had a great season, but we came up short of our goal.”
