Yankees agree to deal with LHP JA Happ

Yankees agree to deal with LHP JA Happ

After reports in recent days indicating that Happ is close to a deal with both the Philadelphia Phillies and New York Yankees, new information has revealed that the Phillies do not expect Happ to take their bait.

The Yankees now have James Paxton, Luis Severino, Masahiro Tanaka, CC Sabathia and Happ penciled into their starting rotation.

Jon Heyman of FanCred reported the agreement would be for two-years worth $34 million and a vesting option for a third-year.

The Yankees know this as well as anyone, having acquired him previous year and watched he posted a 7-0 record and a 2.69 ERA in 11 starts in NY.

Facebook admits bug allowed apps to see hidden photos
The company is also suggesting users should log into apps to find out if they have access to photos they shouldn't. This time, the company said that a bug in one of its APIs exposed the private photos of almost 6.8 million users.

The Yankees lost out on the free-agent signings of Patrick Corbin and Nathan Eovaldi, and Wednesday afternoon The Athletic's Marc Carig reported the club had been engaged in. It is believed to be a three-year contract.

In 11 starts for the Yankees down the stretch last season, Happ finished with a 7-0 record, 2.69 earned run average, and 63 strikeouts in 63.2 innings.

The New York Yankees might not be concentrating all of their efforts and wealth on the free-agent market yet, but they certainly are making plenty of noise on the trade market. Jordan Montgomery is also set to return, but he's coming off Tommy John surgery.
