The New York Yankees agreed to a Major League contract with former Boston Red Sox outfielder Franchy Cordero on Wednesday, ESPN’s Jeff Passan reported.

Cordero’s contract is a split deal that will pay him $1 million in the big leagues and $180,000 in the Minor Leagues.

The 28-year-old opened spring training with the Baltimore Orioles but asked to be released on Monday after slashing .413/.426/.674 with two home runs, four doubles, and a triple.


In a career-high 275 plate appearances with the Red Sox last year, Cordero hit .219/.300/.397 with eight home runs.

The addition of Cordero means the Yankees could be moving on from Estevan Florial, who is out of options.
