The New York Yankees have agreed to terms with RHP Adam Ottavino on a three-year contract worth $27 million, according to multiple sources. It sounds like there is growing momentum towards a Sonny Gray trade, so I imagine that will have something to do with the corresponding 40-man roster spot to make room for Ottavino. Ottavino makes an already highly-regarded Yankees bullpen into the consensus best bullpen in baseball, even after losing David Robertson to the Philadelphia Phillies. Brian Cashman had said his plan this offseason was to bring in two relievers, and in the last few weeks the Yanks...

The offseason is far from finished, but Spring Training is now one month away, and there is a more than zero percent chance that the New York Yankees have completed their major offseason transactions. The team you start the season with is never the team you end the season with, but it is about time we project the opening day lineup if the season were to hypothetically start tomorrow. With Didi Gregorius out and Manny Machado and Bryce Harper seemingly out of the picture, who would be on that Opening Day 25-man crew? This is a long blog, so I'm...

The Yankees formally addressed their bullpen after the departure of David Robertson by re-upping on a three-year deal with lefty Zach Britton. Britton’s deal is slightly unorthodox, though not as weird as the one that Yusei Kikuchi and the Mariners agreed to earlier this week. The base deal of the contract is more-or-less three years for $39 million, according to Ken Rosenthal. Jeff Passan is reporting that there is a fourth-year team option and an opt-out that Britton can exercise after the second year of the deal. The part where it gets particularly odd is that the Yankees have to...

The Yankees agreed to a one-year deal for the league minimum salary on Tuesday night with shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, their first transaction of the 2019 calendar year, according to Jeff Passan. It is a Major League contract. Tulowitzki, 34, had been released by the Toronto Blue Jays last month. He did not play one game in 2018 and the Blue Jays decided to just eat the remainder of his contract and grant him free agency, a move that surprised a lot of people coming from a franchise in somewhat of a rebuild. 2010 Big Baby Dave is pretty stoked about...

The Yankees made the JA Happ signing official on Monday, announcing that the organization has signed the 36-year-old southpaw to a 2 year deal with a vesting option for the third year in 2021. The full terms of the contract have not yet been announced, at the time of this writing, but we had heard when they agreed to the terms last week that it was 2 years, $34M ($17M per year) and it would be another $17 million if the contract vests. I’ll assume those remain the terms. The third year will likely vest as long as Happ maintains...
