NEW YORK -- Relief pitcher Brian Bruney and the New York Yankees agreed Tuesday to a $725,000, one-year contract.

The right-hander from Warrenton, Ore., who turns 26 on Feb. 17, asked for $845,000 in arbitration and was offered $640,000. He made $395,545 last year, when he went 3-2 with a 4.68 ERA in 58 appearances.

New York also has a preliminary agreement with second baseman Robinson Cano on a $30 million, four-year contract, a deal that still needs to be finalized.

Starting pitcher Chien-Ming Wang is the other Yankees player in arbitration. He asked for $4.6 million and was offered $4 million after going 19-7 last year, his second consecutive season with 19 wins.
