MLB Rumors: Zach Britton, Yankees Agree To Three-Year Contract

David Robertson, RHP, formerly of the New York Yankees, who became a free agent following the 2018 season has inked a 2 year, $21 million deal with the Philadelphia Phillies.

Though the deal isn't finalized yet, sources tell ESPN the deal will be for three years guaranteed and that the Yankees will be able to exercise a fourth-year option after the second season. Thus far, Robertson has thrown 501 games with the New York Yankees (2008-14, 2017-18) and 153 games with the Chicago White Sox (2015-17), combining for a 2.88 ERA, 1.145 WHIP, 137 saves and a 874-260 strikeout-to-walk ratio over 657 innings. "There will always be lockdown closers, but there's a good mix of guys like me who will pitch anywhere".

The Phillies bolstered their bullpen, signing one of the most consistent relievers in the game Thursday.

Robertson represented himself in contract negotiations for the first time.

"I don't know how aggressive we're going to be in shopping our players because we like the group we have right now", Klentak said. He did not allow a hit in three postseason appearances in 2018.

Here's proof that Arsenal have messed up the Aaron Ramsey situation

Robertson opted for free agency at the end of the season.

Robertson replaced Mariano Rivera after he retired following the 2013 season and had 39 saves in 2014.

Robertson, 33, has been a pretty steady reliever over the past several years, keeping his ERA in the mid-3.00 range with flashes of brilliance here and there.

"I had a great time playing in NY". They've also signed Andrew McCutchen and traded for Jean Segura, two players known for their durability and consistency.

The team also is scheduled to meet with Bryce Harper.
