(Reuters) - The New York Yankees have avoided arbitration with relievers Joba Chamberlain and David Robertson by signing the two right handers to one-year, non-guaranteed contracts, the American League team said on Tuesday.

Chamberlain, 26, is returning from surgery that sidelined most of the 2011 season.

He went 2-0 with a 2.83 earned run average in 27 relief appearances before undergoing surgery for a strained right flexor muscle in June.

Robertson, 26, was 4-0 and had a 1.08 earned run average in a team-high 70 appearances.
