Bronx, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - The New York Yankees agreed to terms with outfielder Brett Gardner and pitchers Ivan Nova, Shawn Kelley and David Robertson Friday, thus avoiding arbitration with all four players.

Gardner registered 10 triples, eight home runs, 52 RBI and 24 stolen bases while batting .273 in 145 games with the Yankees last season, his sixth with New York since being selected by the club in the third round back in 2005.

The 30-year-old speedster is a career .268 hitter with 33 triples, 23 homers, 177 RBI and 161 stolen bases in 620 games.

Nova, 27, made 20 starts for New York last season and went 9-6 with a 3.10 ERA in 23 games overall. Over four seasons with the Yankees, Nova has gone 38-20 with a 4.04 ERA and two shutouts in 89 games, including 82 starts.

Kelly posted a 4-2 record and a 4.39 ERA in 57 appearances last season, his first with the Yankees after spending his first four big league seasons in Seattle.

Robertson, a six-year veteran, racked up 77 strikeouts in 66 1/3 innings while going 5-1 with a 2.04 ERA over 70 appearances out of New York's bullpen last season.
