While Yankees fans continue to await news on Manny Machado, it was reported that Zach Britton has signed a 3 year deal with the Yankees with an option for a 4th year. 

The deal will average $13 million each season, with an opt-out clause after 2020 if the team does not exercise its option for the 2022 campaign. If Britton departs after two years, he would have earned $26 million; completing the full four years would net him $53 million. The signing has not been announced by the team.

In 41 combined appearances for both the Orioles and Yankees, Britton was 2-0 with a 3.10 ERA and seven saves in 10 chances, permitting 14 earned runs in 40 2/3 innings with 34 strikeouts

Since the beginning of the 2014 season, Britton leads all Major League pitchers (min. 200 innings pitched) with a 1.82 ERA.
