The New York Yankees want to improve their roster and make bold additions to the team after missing the playoffs in 2013. They're about to make a monumental move that will shake the entire winter off-season.
Jon Heyman of CBS Sports and WFAN reported on Tuesday night that the Yankees and Boston Red Sox outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury are closing in on a seven-year deal to lure the starting Red Sox center fielder over to the Bronx.
"Star free agent outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury is in serious talks with the Yankees and the sides appear to be close to reaching a seven-year deal. sources said. "It could happen," said someone familiar with the talks. It is believed the deal would exceeed Carl Crawford's $142-million, seven-year deal."
"Yankees deal with Ellsbury is seven years and $153 million. That's $12 million more than Crawford's contract," he tweeted.
