On Tuesday four New York Yankees hurlers filed for arbitration; relievers Boone Logan, Joba Chamberlain, David Robertson and starting pitcher Phil Hughes.

The arbitration hearings are scheduled to take place from Feb. 4 through Feb. 20, but players and teams can reach agreements before any hearing takes place.

Hughes is in his third year of eligibility and final year of arbitration could receive the biggest increase. In 2012 in 25 starts Phil went 16-13 with a 4.23 ERA and made $3.2 million.

Chamberlain also in his third year of eligibility missed much of 2012 with injuries and made $1.675 million and in 22 appearances went 1-0 with a 4.35 ERA. Chamberlain and has had continued injury issues and probably will get a small increase.

Logan in his fourth year of eligibility made a league leading 80 appearances and commanded $1.875 million. Robertson who is only in his second year of eligibility made $1.6 million in 65 appearances and sported a low 2.67 ERA. Both were key figures in the bullpen and will continue to be relied upon as huge contributors in the Yankees success.

New York's last hearing as an organization was 2008 when they defeated Chien-Ming Wang with a $4 million offer. Wang had requested $4.6 million.
