Yanks, Cairo agree to one-year, $750K deal

NEW YORK -- Infielder Miguel Cairo decided to remain with
the New York Yankees, reaching a preliminary agreement on a
$750,000, one-year contract.

Cairo, who must pass a physical for the deal to be completed,
hit .239 with 30 RBI in 222 at-bats last season. He also played
for the Yankees in 2004, then spent 2005 with the New York Mets.

In addition to his salary, he would earn $50,000 bonuses for 350
and 400 plate appearances.

His agreement was first reported Saturday by the New York Post.
