Brian has a new place to call home.
It was first reported a few hours ago by Evan Grant (of Dallas) that McCann was close to signing a deal with the New York Yankees; it is now official. Brian McCann has signed a 5 year, $85 million deal with the Yankees, with a 6th year option that could bring the overall value of the deal to $100mil. He also received a full no trade clause. This is all pending a physical.
He is also now the highest paid catcher ever on the free agent market (via Ken Rosenthal)
Jason Heyward and Freddie Freeman “acknowledged” the signing
I wish him the best in New York. You are welcome to leave your thoughts about this developing announcement in the columns below.
