New York Yankees agree to one-year deal with two-time Cy Young Award winner Corey Kluber


NEW YORK — On a deal that has both risk and reward, the New York Yankees and right-hander Corey Kluber have reached agreement on a one-year contract.

The deal has a base value of $11 million, a person familiar with the negotiations told the Bergen (New Jersey) Record. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the agreement is pending a physical. 

A plodding, pinstriped winter of waiting and stalled negotiations suddenly revved into a whiplash-inducing speed on Friday. 

In a span of 12 hours, the Yankees finally brought back team MVP DJ LeMahieu on a six-year $90 million contract, re-signed all eight of their arbitration eligible players and secured a former ace for their rotation. 

ESPN’s Jeff Passan was first to report the Yanks’ agreement Friday with Kluber.
