A familiar face is returning to the Bronx.
The New York Yankees and reliever Tommy Kahnle agreed to a two-year, $11.5 million contract on Tuesday, according to ESPN’s Jeff Passan.
The Boston Red Sox made a push to sign Kahnle but were outbid by the Yankees, per Jon Heyman of MLB Network.
Kahnle pitched for parts of four seasons with the Yankees from 2017-20. The 33-year-old posted a 2.84 ERA in just 12 2/3 innings for the Los Angeles Dodgers last season after coming back from Tommy John surgery.
