The Yankees have decided to offer star outfielder Bobby Abreu arbitration, people familiar with their thinking tell SI.com. However, it remains more likely that he will sign elsewhere as a free agent.

The Yankees are in fact very likely making the offer with the anticipation he will sign with another team, and should that occur they will net two draft choices as Abreu is a Type A free agent. Abreu would stand to make about $16 million in arbitration after making that much last year after the Yankees picked up a one-year option to retain him and he hit .296 with 20 home runs, 100 RBIs and 100 runs. That marked the eighth time Abreu scored at least 100 runs and seventh time he drove in at least 100.
Abreu is said to be seeking a three-year deal. The Cubs and Mets are seen as among the most likely suitors for Abreu.
