ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) New York Yankees president Randy Levine feels Dellin Betances was the victim of "over the top demands based on very little sense of reality" by his representatives at Friday's arbitration hearing won by the team.

The Yankees beat Betances in the year's final salary arbitration case, and the relief pitcher will be paid $3 million rather than his $5 million request.

"What his agents did was make him a victim of an attempt to change a market place in baseball that has been well established for 30, 40 years, and I feel bad for him that he was used that way by his agents," Levine said Saturday after the decision was announced. "Five million dollars goes to elite closers, people who pitch the ninth inning and have a lot, a lot and a lot of saves."
