The New York Yankees bolstered their starting rotation on Thursday night.
According to ESPN’s Jeff Passan, the club agreed to a six-year, $162 million contract with veteran left-handed starting pitcher Carlos Rodón. The deal includes a no-trade clause and is pending a physical.
The 30-year-old joins a starting rotation that already includes Gerrit Cole, Nestor Cortes, Luis Severino, and Frankie Montas.
In 31 starts this past season with the San Francisco Giants, Rodón posted a 2.88 ERA over a career-high 178 innings. He earned his second consecutive All-Star selection and placed sixth in the National League Cy Young balloting.
The Yankees have now guaranteed $522 million to Rodón and star outfielder Aaron Judge this offseason.
